Ombriere of the Old Port

of Marseille

by the architect Norman Foster

Old Port Ombriere: Between a work of art and an urban facility

Launched in March 2012, work on the Vieux-Port has created a vast esplanade.

Strolls along the Old Port of Marseille have taken on a whole new interest since the firm of British architect Norman Foster installed this horizontal mirror of more than 1,000 m2, raised on four legs above the walkers.

This architectural coquetry, a polished stainless steel monument that reflects the sea, the façades and the floors of the Vieux-Port, has become a meeting place for the people of Marseille and tourists alike.
