MARSEILLE 2013 european capital of culture


surface of Marseille city : 240,6 sqkm. surface of Paris city : 105 sqkm.

The European Capital of Culture is a city designated by the European Union for a period of one calendar year during which it organises a series of cultural events with a strong European dimension.

Preparing a European Capital of Culture can be an opportunity for the city to generate considerable cultural, social and economic benefits and it can help foster urban regeneration, change the city's image and raise its visibility and profile on an international scale.

web site in english:
http://www.mp2013.fr/?lang=en



The Musée des Civilisations de l'Europe et de la Méditerranée (MuCEM) - in English Museum of Civilisations from Europe and the Mediterranean – is a national museum located in Marseille, France, that will open in May 2013, during Marseille's year as European Capital of Culture.

The museum will be dedicated to the civilisations of Europe and the Mediterranean sea, from international and research-originated collections oriented towards a transdisciplinary approach to societies as a whole, and in the thickness of the time.
The museum is being built on the site of the 17th-century Fort Saint-Jean and a former port terminal called the J4. A basin lies between the new building on the J4 and the Fort Saint-Jean, the two sites are connected by a 130 m long thin bridge while another bridge now connects the Fort Saint-Jean to the Esplanade de la Tourette, in the historical district of Le Panier.
The new building "of stone, water and wind,"was designed by architect Rudy Ricciotti (associated with Roland Carta). It consists in a cube of 15,000 square meters with collections on two levels, an auditorium of 400 seats, a bookshop and a restaurant with a panoramic terrace headed by the chef of Le Petit Nice, Gerald Passedat.

















CEREM the regional Center of the Mediterranean Sea by italian architect Stefano Boeri. 10 000 sqm.
Drink a coffee at the water's edge, assist a conference in the immersed part, visit the exhibition of the high part of the building : such will be the possibilities offered to the visitor of the regional Center of the Mediterranean Sea to Marseille. By conjugating a friendly space, a place of exhibitions and a center of congress, it should impose upon the tourist, upon the stroller, but also upon the persons fascinated by the Mediterranean life or still in institutional and responsible economic.

CITY OF BORDEAUX. MERIADECK DISTRICT. FRANCE

The MERIADECK DISTRICT was built on the principle of the charter of Athens, an urbanism philosophy of Le Corbusier.

[IMG][/IMG]
meriadeck in the sixties

The Charter account 95 points on the planning and the construction of cities.
Among the handled subjects: tower blocks, separation of the residential zones and ways of transport as well as conservation of the historic districts and other pre-existent buildings.
The main underlying concept was the creation of independent zones for four "functions": the life, the work, the leisure activities and the infrastructures of transport.


meriadeck in the seventies

A lot of districts in France are built with this Athens charter principles : Meriadeck in Bordeaux, La Part-Dieu in Lyon, La Défense in Paris, the Beaugrenelle district in Paris 15th, etc.

I call this town planning : characteristic concrete architecture of the seventies with slabs, overpasses, etc.


"skyline of Bordeaux"

The Meriadeck district is now 50 years old samely as La Defense, Meriadeck is an unkown, a underestimated Realization abroad and even in France.



A new Tramway line since 2003, a shopping center, hotels, offices, housing, services, garden on the slab, overpasses, diverses equipments, the MERIADECK DISTRICT Began recently his renovation to humanize to modernize his area.






In 1955, the municipality of BORDEAUX managed by Jacques Chaban-Delmas decides on the total renovation of a dilapidated area.
The project plans the construction of buildings typical "bars" of these years.



In 1963, the renovation becomes restructuring and the district Mériadeck will be finally the business district of Bordeaux with commercial and administrative modern buildings, as well as sports equipments (ice rink, etc).



Numerous administrations and services are grouped in these big buildings, the height of which was finally limited, built around a central garden.



Furthermore, the car traffic and that of the pedestrians were separated by the construction of a paving stone, the current esplanade Charles de Gaulle.

Exellent thread. Thank you for showing this overview of france's projects outside paris.
Because of its size in the economy (30% of France by itself for 20% of population) one may think that only Paris deserve great projects.
Of course this is not the case , even if we still live in a centralised state.
(the most recent case is great paris metro for 30bn , nothing for province..)

hello my friend, I don't want to create a debate, but it's French. i hope that we are not second-class citizens, we the frenchies of the provinces.

But I agree with our premier minister AYRAULT who said : a rich and powerful Paris region is useful, effective and indispensable for all France.

Hello my friend !
Good idea for a subject. Interessant photos and informations about french cities for a visitor who does not know or very well France. Many tourists limit their vision of France in Paris, it's too bad.
Paris is far from the most pleasant city of France. It's a very polluted city, crowded transportation, prices are high ...
Marseille and Lyon and other cities have a very good quality of life, more than Paris.
