The city of Cannes located in the south of France, might be internationally known for its events, but a go back to the local scale would be the leading idea for the project, as the citizens are missing places to meet each others . Indeed, the biggest public space in the city centre has been replaced 25 years ago by a building in order to host more events, and the few museums of the town mainly exhibit permanent collections. Therefore, and as part of a bigger scale multi-phase project, the goal would be to add a new urban piece to the city, fully integrated in the surrounding context. The proposed site is located near the old pier, down the old town's hill, a place used today as an open-air parking. It faces the sea and got a unique view over the bay of Cannes: this urban and landscape context shows how much potential it has while waiting to be activated. The program's content would be a temporary exhibitions sided museum and a university library linked with the future township's projects outside of town. The buildings would hold an inner space that would be designed as public space. Also, what is on the site would be redesigned (Port Authorities building, Tickets offices to go to the Lerins, Islands, bus stops..), as well as a new buried parking.
