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.

Ok so it is not the city of Arles, but one of Marseille's suburb ? Another grand Ghery construction in Fr.
