Behind the MAMO is Ora Ito, a precocious design genius who created the buzz when he was 19.

In a superbly generous move, he bought Le Corbusier Cite Radieuse‘s gymnasium and renovated it in order to turn it into an art centre: the MArseille MOdulor, with an obvious 😉 to NY’s MoMA, Marseille style.

For it’s opening, the MAMO is hosting works of Xavier Veilhan as part of it’s Architectone series within it’s walls and on the roof terrace, until september 30.

I am throwing this in here, is it looks a lot like Xavier Veilhan’s work… that bust of a women caught up between two arms of the expressway was a welcome sight when sitting in the habitual traffic jam at the entrance of the harbour, but it couldn’t resist very long to the mistral, a few days latter it was laying on the floor..
