Letter from Bordeaux: we chart the new wave of architecture projects shaping the French city

- Wallpaper: http://www.wallpaper.com/architectur...gUUgpQiQA9J.99

- See the architecture projects reshaping Bordeaux



Quote:
The busy French port of Bordeaux is in a state of transformation. A place of cultural exchange for more than 2,000 years, the city centre has been listed by UNESCO as 'an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble, created in the Age of Enlightenment', based on past eras' innovations. When mayor Alain Juppé kick started a - currently ongoing - urban renaissance in 1996, he was aiming to respect this glorious past, but look firmly towards the city's future, bringing innovation back in its heart.

Until recently, urban development was mostly limited to the left bank of the river Garonne, locking the city into one-sided growth. Known as 'the Port of the Moon' for its crescent-like shape, the city will, by 2030, complete its upgrade to 'full moon' and attract up to 100,000 new residents (about 50,000 new residents have already moved here in the last five years). Large parts of the city are being 'reactivated' and public spaces and connections improved; a new TGV line is also coming to town, strategically reducing the distance between Bordeaux and Paris to a mere two hours.

At the moment, across the city, a range of large-scale projects, including a handful of new districts emerging in former industrial areas, is currently in design, planning or construction. Key French and international practices are involved to mastermind entire neighbourhoods or create landmark buildings. Contributors include BIG, Herzog & de Meuron, Youssef Tohmé, Michel Desvigne, Rudy Ricciotti, MVRDV and OMA. The latter has been working on two different masterplans in the city; one is a major new urban development in the south, based on the expansion of the local tram system, and the other is around 50,000 new housing units in the city.

One of the key aims is to avoid anonymous suburbs and encourage the creation of new urban centres that are well connected and fully equipped to serve both the existing and the newly born neighbourhoods around them. The task of bringing in modernity while respecting heritage required some serious investigation into Bordeaux's DNA, which is defined by the city's two distinct banks and the juxtaposition of man-made environments and nature within them. Here we visit some of the projects set to change the face of Bordeaux.

I have to say France is currently building some world class cultural centres in recent years.

Cité des civilisations du vin - Bordeaux
Musée des Confluences - Lyon
Fondation Louis-Vuitton pour la création - Paris
Philharmonie - Paris

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



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.

Hôtel Castéja redevelopment | Quartier Bordeaux Centre | Perrot & Richard Architectes | Redevelopment in a mix-use project houses and services | Approved

-ObjectifAquitaine: http://objectifaquitaine.latribune.f...n-surface.html

Quote:
This palace is one of the major monuments of the city of Bordeaux and has for a long time been a hospital dedicated to the care of the deaf and dumb of France.

This building has been transformed in the twentieth century in a ‘Hôtel de Police’ (police headquarters) and will be developed in housing project. The competition focused on the enhancement of the site and facilities. Our team concentrated with great interest on this program, with the integration of contemporary functions within an ancient heritage. Our agency has got a particular interest and knowledge for this type of subject.

A lifting of the Place du Colonel Raynal and the rue Claude Bonnier in Bordeaux


©L'Oeildelahotographie

Quote:
The new development of the Place du Colonel Raynal proposes the creation of a large square vegetated with trees, on which will be installed Mériadeck fountain (formerly positioned square André Lhote). The movement of two-wheelers will also be allowed on this space classified pedestrian area.

Side street Claude Bonnier, the development plan includes the construction of a pedestrian square in front of the Cité Municipale, a leafy band, and a parking space assigned to the disabled and school buses. In the delivery of this project, traffic will be reduced to a sense, since the Albret over to the Rue du Chateau d'Eau, a direction against being reserved for buses and emergency vehicles.
