France: an award for Franck Hammoutène and Agilia®

Architect Franck Hammoutène received the Équerre d'Argent award for his extension to the Marseille City Hall.

 

The extension created museum space and new council chambers as well as 20,000 m² of esplanades and public gardens. The architect and his team used 8,000 m³ of Lafarge concrete - including 600 m³ of Agilia® - for this project, which blends in with the topography of the site thanks to an intelligent combination of mineral and plant elements.
