Marseille

New Project

LAN won the competition to realize the building of the Eastern basins of the Grand Port Maritime of Marseille. The project is a form composed by the superimposition of three figures: a rectangular base that is implanted on the entire plot, an intermediate U-shaped body facing the sea, a two-storey crown that grows around a courtyard.

Materiality

The search for a real identity for the neighborhood is illustrated by a definition commonly decided. The occupation of spaces, the establishment of the relationship between potential size and facades, the study of the sunshine and winds, are all topics addressed to ensure a coherent urban response.

Pavillon de l'arsenal

From March 11th to May 19th, the Nouvel Air project for the "Inventer Bruneseau" competition was exhibited at the Pavillon de l'Arsenal as part of Paris Rive Gauche. The proposal demonstrates the possibility of building a "common" city, even at the center of road infrastructure.

Public space

The heart of the project is imagined as an empty space that one enters, a convivial and unitary public space which crosses the whole site while connecting buildings between them and the plot with its environment.
