La Cité Radieuse

The Cité Radieuse of Marseille is a “vertical village” built between 1947 and 1952 by the architect Le Corbusier. Surrounded by a four-hectare park, this housing unit is a masterful architectural symbol of Marseille.

In addition to, the construction techniques, the functional dimension of the structure, the use of new materials, and the control of sound and light, this building is a village within the city, with 337 housing units and also a school, shops, a hotel, a restaurant and an art center.

The universe of each Le Corbusier hotel room is a creation of the architect: cabin rooms, studios with a sea view, and mini suites. On the third floor, there is also a unique place for seminars and business lunches.

Indeed, the gourmet restaurant Le Ventre de l’architecte, with vintage design, offers thirty place settings, with breathtaking sea views. It is a magical place for professional lunches or dinners.

Designed by Ora Ito, the rooftop MAMO Audi Talent Awards is an artistic place between earth and sky, a springboard for upcoming creative talent. The Marseillais Ora Ito is recognized worldwide. In 2002, he received the Oscar for best design for a Heineken aluminum bottle and has since worked for major international brands (Adidas, Guerlain, Pucci, Christofle, Decaux and Audi).

Visit the art center when you come; many exhibitions are organized there, and the access to the rooftop is an artistic, touristic invitation offering you a 360° view of Marseille.
