In a previous post, I presented the MOMA=Marseille Modulor, a design and art gallery nestled in the gymnasium of Le Corbusier’s « Cite Radieuse », courtesy of star designer Ora Ito, see post here

The MAMO currently showcases the Audi Talents Awards, the work of laureates since 2007 in an exhibition called Residence secondaire.


Arnaud Lapierre, laureat 2011, « Limp ». 


Constance Guisset, Laureate 2010, « Ankara » (not as exciting as her Vertigo lamp)


Laureat 2008, Benjamin Graindorge: sofaScape


Sebastien Cordoleani, Co-Laureat 2007, Strates (chair)

Marie-Aurore Stiker-Metral. Laureate 2009: « Plumages », in collaboration with M. Marceau, Paris

Days after seeing Le Corbusier’s expo at the J1, the visit takes another dimension, and I can’t help taking yet another set of pictures of the paquebot terrace, the soft autumn light on the concrete is irresistible…
