Sky-high Stainless Steel

Vieux Port,  Marseille,  May 2016

The reflective pavilion in the Vieux Port is always on my visit list when I’m in Marseille.  This slender steel canopy towers over the port area, providing reflections of both the ground and the neighbouring water.  It has been cleverly designed with tapered edges so that it looks like a delicate structure, almost too fragile to feature so much activity.

My last trip revealed how it manages to give such accurate reflections.  It is very thoroughly cleaned and polished – yet another height-related job that I could never do.

  1. I am surprised that more places don’t take advantage of the possibilities of reflection. We have “The Bean” in Chicago and it is visited constantly by tourists and locals alike … such fun :). Nicely done, Debbie …
