The Marseilles Docks as a place of reflexion and meeting between territory and city, past and future, users and inhabitants of the place. The Marseilles Docks as a place of architecture which is an answer to a specific context: an intervention on sensitivity and place specificity, Marseilles in relation to the Docks, the city and the sea. An intervention on the Docks ground level to create an opened system connected to penetration, transparencies and new relations extending to the sea. An intervention on people flow to give different intensities to the place.
We have been particularly attentive to how things are perceived, visual apertures, pathways and other features: light to create original atmospheres, the sun and wind as architectural/energy devices.
Reveal the beauty of a place so that it can be shared.

I Docks come luogo di riflessione e di incontro tra territorio e città, passato e futuro, utilizzatori ed abitanti dei luoghi, dell'architettura come risposta specifica ad un contesto preciso: un intervento sulla sensibilità e la specificità del luogo, Marsiglia, nella sua relazione tra i Docks, la città ed il mare; un intervento sullo scantinato dei Docks per creare un sistema aperto articolato attorno a penetrazioni, trasparenze e nuove relazioni, che si prolunga fino al mare; un intervento sul flusso delle persone per dare ai luoghi varie intensità. Siamo particolarmente attenti alle percezioni, alle aperture visive, ai percorsi ed agli elementi: la luce per creare atmosfere originali, il sole ed il vento come dispositivi architettonici o energetici. Rivelare la bellezza del luogo per offrirla in condivisione.
