In order to be well-prepared as a representer of culture, the city of Marseille has already done a spectacular work in the Architecture department. The transformation manifests itself and the cute Provençal hub is turning into a very modern destination. New museums by architects Rudy Ricciotti and Kengo Kuma, along with spaces for special events, add a lot of points to the city’s cultural status. Norman Foster is also one of the great architects that has participated in the city’s revitalizing. All corners of the port city – including the run-down Old Port have been revamped in an excellent way. Have a look at our collection of photos and renderings and meet some of the most important structures that will forever change the face of Marseilles.
