Prado Shopping mall in Marseille.
The canopy becomes at night a sculpture of light that progresses indoor and outdoor. The building is an urban signal that catches the eye, immediately identified at the fall of the night.
The canopy, itself, is a signal that identifies and qualifies the location – visible from near as from afar – inviting the visitor to wander in the mall.
«The glasshouse as a signal : the glasshouse is brought to life, charged with solar light during the day,
It restitutes allegorically this energy in the shape of a colored array of lights in movement…
The commercial seasons are pacing the coloured life of the canopy.
Perpetual renewal of the programs.”
