Hot House Sea Bathing: A Villa in Marseille: Jean Baptiste Pietri Architect (Paperback)Aurelien Gillier (author)
Paperback Published: 01/10/2009
- Not available
Located near the old port in Marseille is the villa known as Les Bains de Mer Chauds, designed by Jean-Baptiste Petri. This villa slots perfectly into a mixed and complex urban metropolis. Its formal language respects the Mediterranean atmosphere and culture specific to Marseille and the surrounding coastal region. Not a 'house' or even a building in the accepted sense, but a dwelling in a different register: an encampment. An environment of decklike terraces and balconies, the sensation of merged internal and external environments, and the natural elements of sun and sea. The rich association of ideas and materials offer an extraordinary experience as readers are taken through the spaces and levels provided by Jean Baptiste Pietr's structure.
