Located in the South-West of France, Bordeaux is the regional capital of Aquitaine and the Gironde department. The historic city centre is now at the heart of an urban agglomeration with more than 700,000 residents, and the ambition to become a million-resident metropolis by 2030.

The Bordeaux Metropolitan Area is one of the most attractive in France. Classed as a world heritage site by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) since 2007, Bordeaux is still looking to develop further. Many large-scale projects are currently underway.

Here are just a few examples: soon the arrival of the high speed rail line will mean Bordeaux is just two hours away from Paris, a bridge will link the Bacalan and Bastide areas, the FRAC (Regional Funds for Contemporary Art) will have a new home and the Cité des Civilisations du Vin will be established. Major investments and projects which bear witness to the dynamism of Aquitaine and its capital city.

Cité des civilisations du vin | Quartier Bordeaux Maritime | U/C | Opening 2016

Quote:
Neither a museum nor a theme park, but an original concept which lies somewhere in between.

The Center for wine and civilization will not be a museum in the classic sense of the word, as we will not be showing specific collections in the permanent exhibition space. It will not be a theme park either, which are places whose main purpose is to entertain and amuse. The original concept of the Centre will subtly mix the best of these two worlds.

Promote emotion, feelings and the dream

Conveying knowledge in an interactive way. Allowing visitors to enjoy the experience at their own pace. Following you heart. These are the founding principles of the Center for wine and civilization’s visitor experience. Our visitors will set off on a voyage of discovery through the history of wine and civilisation, exploring the different facets of this ancient relationship (history, geography, geology, oenology, the arts, etc.) Welcoming visitors into the world of wine, the Center for wine and civilization will prioritise emotion, experience, sensations and dreaming.

The future City of civilizations of wine aims to become an emblematic place of excellence and a true gateway to the vineyards of Bordeaux. It thus continue a tourist economic objective (support and promote the industry), (development of wine tourism) and cultural.

It doors opens early 2016! The site chosen for the project from the City of civilizations is that old wine forges the Port of Bordeaux along the Garonne, in the neighborhood of River afloat. In direct contact with the river, enjoying an exceptional accessibility (tram bypass, Bacalan Bastide bridge) and high visibility, the City of civilizations wine takes the form of a building due to the exceptional architecture.

Bordeaux Euratlantique | Quartier Bordeaux Sud | Urban master-plan redevelopment | U/C




Quote:
Bordeaux: European Metropolis

Ranked 39th out of the European cities, the metropolis of Bordeaux aims to reach the 20th place within 15 to 20 years. The Bordeaux-Euratlantique Operation of National Importance will accelerate this urban development by consolidating and expanding its trading, command, and innovation functions. As a unifying project for the conurbation, it will also be one of the main driving forces of the city's image and visibility in France and abroad. The two motors of this future European conurbation of a million inhabitants will be economic attractiveness and residential appeal.


Quote:
The centre of business for the city of a million inhabitants

With its new assets, the conurbation of Bordeaux now has what it needs to join the ranks of the major cities: a tramway linking different central areas, science parks that have achieved accreditation, a city that has been made more attractive, and a conurbation that will have a population of over a million. Bordeaux will gain a significant competitive edge as it becomes connected to the rest of Europe by the high-speed train line, as journey time to Paris is reduced and as the possibilities of linking up with Toulouse and Bilbao are explored. However, these things alone will not be decisive in transforming Bordeaux into a major European city. This is why a clear and easily-understood development strategy, a renewed and visible economic programme as well as an attractive urban environment must be set out and implemented.

The Bordeaux-Euratlantique project is one of the cornerstones of the success of this vision.

An innovative and international centre of business will be the first factor in differentiating Bordeaux Euratlantique as it moves towards a strategy for its place in Europe. The project will propose a business centre for the service sector of 400,000 m² in the heart of the city. This business centre will benefit from its proximity to the High-Speed Train (TGV) station and everything that it offers. Thus an innovative district is starting to take shape with close links to the Garonne River: a diverse environment offering high-performance public transport, housing, offices, local trade, squares and pleasant public places, hotels and congress centres, night life … in a new focal point for Bordeaux.
In order to attract activities from outside the area, the project must fully take advantage of the opening-up of the conurbation to Europe that will be facilitated by the high-speed train lines. It should also stimulate the structuring of a region of projects around Bordeaux, Toulouse, and Bilbao. The possibility for meaningful co-operation between these three cities will help to attract investors, project promoters and centres of decision-making.


A European Business District

Key infrastructure

■ The Bordeaux St Jean High-Speed Train (TGV) station will be transformed and enlarged to welcome 20 million users, a 50 % increase in the passengers using the Regional Express Train (TER) service, and three high-speed lines linking Bordeaux to Paris / Toulouse / Bilbao. Initial work will begin in 2016

■ The future Jean Jacques Bosc crossing, to the south of the Bordeaux suburbs will link Floirac to Bègles and Bordeaux in 2016

■ A business centre will start to take shape around the Saint Jean station; one which will be supported by the existing area, the dynamism of the metropolitan area and the new focal point of the station with its three high-speed lines to Paris, Toulouse, and Spain.

Rendez-vous in 2016

•Paris / Bordeaux High-Speed Train link (2 hours 5 minutes)
•The St Jean High-Speed Train station transformed and open on the Garonne
•The new Jean Jacques Bosc crossing operational
•The third phase of the tramway finalised
•200,000 to 250,000 m² of real estate development operations launched
75,000 m² of office space completed
•An arc of creative development
•An annual programme reflecting the objectives of a 21st century city:
• 10 % of the housing market on average per year
• 30 to 40 % of the service sector market on average per year

Train à grande vitesse (TGV) High-Speed Train crossroads of Europe | Bordeaux - Paris | U/C | Opening 2017



Quote:
The vision of the Bordeaux-Euratlantique project is linked to the high-profile rail infrastructure project that will transform Bordeaux into an international intersection in south west Europe. This will be brought about with the extension of the High-Speed Rail Line (LGV): Paris to Bordeaux (2 hours 10 minutes), the construction of the Bordeaux-Toulouse line (1 hour) and the Bordeaux-Bilbao line (1 hour 50 minutes), and the doubling of regional express trains (TER).

The arrival of three high-speed lines in Bordeaux in the medium term and the growth of main line traffic, together with the already significant increase in the regional flow of passengers, will see the number of passengers using the Saint-Jean station rise to approximately 20 million by 2020. It also provides a medium-term opportunity for the Bordeaux conurbation, and the whole region, to open the door to a completely new dimension; a potentially ideal place for exchanging ideas, culture, and trade. Having this new dimension will undoubtedly mean that the Saint Jean station will be the driving force of the Bordeaux-Euratlantique project. The rail project and the urban project will be very closely linked.

MÉCA, Maison de l'Économie Créative et de la Culture en Aquitaine | Quartier Bordeaux Sud | Bordeaux Euratlantique | BIG and FREAKS architects | Opening 2017

-Official website: http://www.big.dk/#projects-meca

-ArchDaily: http://www.archdaily.com/246991/me%C...aquitaine-big/
















©BIG and FREAKS architects



Architect interview in English with French subtitles.:



Quote:
The new Maison de l’Économie Créative et de la Culture en Aquitaine, MÉCA, located on the historical riverfront of Bordeaux will house three regional visual and performing arts agencies FRAC, the ECLA and the OARA in one single institution. The Regional Council of Bordeaux selected the winning team among proposals from SANAA, the Toulouse- based firm W-Architectures and Bordeaux-based FLINT.

BIG’s proposal arranges the new center for contemporary art, the performing arts institution and the center for literature and movies around a public space open towards the city of Bordeaux and the Garonne River. The building is conceived as a single loop of public space and cultural institutions as the pavement of the promenade rises to form the roof of the main lobbies, ascends vertically along the stage tower of OARA, bridges across the promenade with the sky lit galleries of the FRAC and returns vertically to the ground at the archives of the ECLA in order to reunite with the waterfront promenade.

“When a region or a city invests millions in a major new cultural institution – it often ends up benefiting only the informed few that already have an interest in the arts. Not only does the MÉCA spill its activities into the public realm and the urban room, but the public is also invited to walk around, through, above and below the new cultural gateway. By inviting the art into the city and the city into the arts, the MÉCA will provide opportunities for new hybrids of cultural and social life beyond the specific definitions of its constituent parts.” Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner, BIG.

The urban room allows everyday life of Bordeaux to flow through its generous frame along the promenade, injecting the art into the city and the city life into the building. The multiple ramps and stairs of the building create an institution that is publicly accessible and welcoming on the inside as well as the outside. The urban room and the informal seating of the stairs will make the MÉCA a lively place and a natural extension of the life along the Quai de Paludate street and the new promenade. During festivals or other special occasions in the city, the outside of the MÉCA can be transformed into a stage for outdoor concerts, theatrical spectacles or art installations.

“The urban room is at once a frame for the artwork, a stage for the performances, a screening room for the media collections and most perhaps most importantly an open room for the urban life of Bordeaux to invade and engage with the arts.”, Andreas Klok Pedersen, Partner-in-Charge, BIG.

Tailored to accommodate the proportions of the performance spaces, the backstage requirements, the archives and the art galleries, the building is tailored to the needs and desires of its individual tenants while fused to form a single urban frame. The building and promenade is clad in the limestone which constitutes the majority of Bordeaux’s architecture. As if carved from the same material as the city itself – the stone is promenade and façade, stair and terrace, roof and ceiling all together.

“The three regional entities composing the program are idiomatic to the French public way of supporting and promoting culture all over the territory. Working on the MÉCA building in Bordeaux is a great occasion to cross views and balance between international references and local issues.” Guillaume Aubry, Cyril Gauthier & Yves Pasquet, Founding Partners, FREAKS freearchitects.

Jean-Jacques Bosc Pont | Quartier Bordeaux Sud | Approved | Opening 2018









Quote:
19 December, Bordeaux - OMA has won the international competition to design the Pont Jean-Jacques Bosc, the sixth bridge across the river Garonne in Bordeaux and the first bridge design to be realized by OMA. Completion is scheduled for 2018.

Positioned at the heart of the Euratlantique project, Pont Jean-Jacques Bosc provides a link between the municipalities of Bègles and Floriac. But more than simply connecting two points of land separated by water, the bridge itself also offers a generous new public space in the city.

Vincent Feltesse, (ex) president of the Urban Community of Bordeaux: "It is an extraordinary architectural gesture. More than a bridge, it is an urban planning intervention in the heart of the Euratlantique project."

Its considerable 44m by 545m expanse, a continuous surface stretching well beyond the banks of the river, seamlessly connects to the land. The gently sloping surface enables a pedestrian promenade while still allowing the necessary clearance for boats beneath. All traffic modes - including private cars, public transport, bicycles and foot traffic - are accommodated by its width, with the largest allowance devoted to pedestrians.

Clément Blanchet, director of OMA France: "The bridge itself is not the 'event' in the city, but a platform that can accommodate events of the city. We wanted to provide the simplest expression - the least technical, least lyrical, but the most concise and effective structural solution."
OMA.
