MARSEILLE | 2013 European Capital of Culture

120187 238
In 2008, Marseille Provence was named European Capital of Culture (ECC) for 2013. The European Capital of Culture is a city designated by the European Union for a period of one calendar year during which it organizes a series of cultural events.

On that occasion, several world-class architects, from Provence and elsewhere, have designed new venues & facilities for artistic creation and cultural exchanges in Marseille, Arles, Aix, and Aubagne. Stefano Boeri, Norman Foster, Kengo Kuma, Zaha Hadid, Eric Castaldi, Rudy Ricciotti, and Franck Gehry are among the architects who were chosen to design new museums, concert halls and galleries.

To learn more about the 2013 official ECC program (exhibitions, concerts, festivals...), please visit:

Here's a quick overview of some of those architectural projects.

I'll post photos in the coming days.

Yeah, sure, an airport near la Belle de Mai... :bash:

Anyway thanks for the cool pictures of the Reserve building :)
Belle de Mai: 120,000 m2 devoted to creative spirits

In the working-class district of the Belle de Mai, located near to all the main transport infrastructures (TGV station, airport and motorways...), Marseille has redeveloped a disused industrial area owned by the National Public Tobacco Company, devoting it entirely to the audiovisual, multimedia and digital industries.
