The urban metamorphosis of Marseille is progressing during a capital year: in 2013, Marseille is the European Capital of Culture. Combining offices, cultural facilities and housing, the new Euroméditerranée district is a showcase for the regeneration of Marseille. And the H99 tower is part of this program!
Today is the five year anniversary of CONTEMPORIST and we’d like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that reads the site, sends in submissions, links to us, advertises with us and sends us emails of encouragement.
Thanks again to everyone who has made CONTEMPORIST a daily read and we hope that you’ll continue to like what you see in our 6th year.

Reincarnated into everything from libraries to bars, it is interesting to witness the growing trend of transforming old cultural sites. With the buildings themselves holding such strong symbolism and history, fusing these ideas together with modern design, always makes for an inspiring assignment for designers and architects.
