Rudy Ricciotti, le MuCEM & Marseilles

Screen Shot 2013-09-12 at 8.57.24 AM

Marseilles is a beautiful port city in Southern France. Spent a whole day there visiting different monuments, churches and museum. Le MuCEM is a special modern museum that has parts connecting to an old monument. It stands out among  all these surrounding historic architectures.   It’s kinda like the glass pyramid in Le Louvre. It looks awkward and weird at first, but then you find it blend in well with everything. I’m a big fan of modern architectures and is more excited to take a look at this unique museum then what’s actually in it.

Algeria born French architect and publisher, he is the designer of the MuCEM in Marseilles and other famous architectures such as le Pavilion Noir in Aix-en-Provence and Villa Navarra in Le Muy. Very brilliant architect.  I always wonder how dod France do such a good job in combining modern and ancient, now and the past. La defense and the arch of triumph is another great example. Standing near MuCEM, you felt like you are in a dimension where yesterday and today both exist.  It’s quite an interesting feeling.
