To reveal the beauty of a place so that it can be shared. The redevelopment of Marseilles docks will re-establish bonds between the site and city, users and local inhabitants. The architecture is a carefully targeted response to a very specific setting: the project weaves relations between the docks, city and seaside; the site of the old structure will become an open system extending to the sea through penetrations, transparencies and new relations; the arrangement of the internal courtyards is designed in relation to the various flows and their intensity with respect to the various locations.
