Vieux Nice

 

Vieux Nice is the city’s vibrant old town, with narrow cobblestone streets and pastel-hued buildings where shops sell Niçoise soaps and Provençal textiles, plus meats and cheeses. A daily market on pedestrian street Cours Saleya offers produce and flowers, and busy pubs and outdoor eateries serving specialties like socca crepes dot the area.

 

Highlights and shadows are used on the roof to render the uniqueness of this precious old town in irregular textures. Ground is made darker than the roof generally to create the spatial depth.

Musée d'Art Moderne

et d'Art Contemporain

 

The Museum is located near the Place Garibaldi. It was designed by two architects, Yves Bayard and Henri Vidal, and is shaped as a tetrapod arch straddling the course of the Paillon.

The monumentality of the project developed to cross the Paillon allows connection through a terrace, called the Promenade des Arts, from the Museum to the Theater. With its square plan, the architecture of the building is inspired by neo-classicism rules.

Strong shadow contrasts are applied to highlight the geometric form of the architecture and landscape design. Plants are lined up to strengthen the modernness of the site.

Promenade du Paillon

 

The Promenade du Paillon is a green flow located in Nice and designed by landscape gardener Michel Péna. It is now a lovely new park in which to stroll, play, relax and watch the world go by.

The Promenade du Paillon opened recently after two years of massive works that saw the destruction of the old bus terminal and ugly concrete carpark.  In their place there are now 12 hectares of green space, linking the National Theatre in the north with the Verdure Theatre on the seafront in a 1.2 km grass and water corridor.

There are multiple landmarks along the green belt, including Lycée Massena, Fontaine du Soleil, Monument du Centenaire and so on.

Feel free to find them out.

 

Trees in sphere shape, lawns presenting in gradient dot clouds are lined up to highlight the dynamics of the city park as a boundary between the planned and unplanned cityscapes.
