workshop introduction

Three buildings, although small in size but considered to be icons of modern architecture, are located on the territory of the Municipality of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin (C˘te d'Azur): Villa E.1027 by Eileen Gray & Jean Badovici, Le Corbusier Camping Units and its Cabanon. Linked by adjacent plots and the history of their owners, these architectures perched on the coast are distant from the old town, which is more than 220 meters above the Grande Corniche road.

The Conservatoire du Littoral has been the owner of these architectures since 2000, with the financial support of the City of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin.

The association Eileen Gray - Etoile de mer Le Corbusier, founded by Robert Rebutato in 2000, has campaigned for the protection of the site and particularly supported the restoration of Villa E.1027, also thanks to the creation of the Cap Moderne Association, which manages the site and welcomes visitors to the station of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin (district of CabbÚ).

However, the opening of Villa E.1027 to the public in 2015 highlighted some issues concerning the creation of sustainable tourism meanwhile promoting the cultural heritage which both require various actors (the Municipality, the Region, The coastline Conservatory, cultural associations, etc.). The balance between sustainable tourism and cultural heritage needs a more in-depth reflection, questioning the future of the site and its integration into the main touristic networks and roads, from the centre to the old town. In this sense, the workshop aims to explore throughout the project of architecture and landscape, the relationship between Tourism and Heritage in a perspective of cultural and economic enhancement of the territory.

 

workshop program

The city of Roquebrune Cap Martin is plural, especially concerning its history and its topography. In fact, Roquebrune Cap Martin is composed by the ancient village of Roquebrune, which is perched on the hills, and the city of Cap-Martin, which follows the hill crest that divides the city into two coastal fronts: the bay of CabbÚ, oriented towards the west and looking towards Monaco, and CarnolŔs, whose limits stretch towards the east as far as Menton. Two train stations link the city: Roquebrune-Cap-Martin station at the west of Cap Martin, and CarnolŔs station at the east. These two sides of the territory offer the opportunity to rethink the polarities of the city, and to articulate them throughout heritage components such as architecture, landscapes and botanicals elements, among which there are: the E-1027 Villa by Eileen Gray & Jean Badovici, the camping units and Cabanon by Le Corbusier, and the opportunity given by the old Air Base 943 site, close to CarnolŔs station, which is now in the process of being transformed, and illustrates the typical landscape characteristics of the Mediterranean microclimate.

 

workshop sites

site 1 > habiter la gare de Roquebrune-Cap-Martin: artistic units

The railway that links Monaco to Menton creates a physical limit between the coast and the heights on which the old village is perched, at 220 meters above the sea-level, accessible only by steep steps. Moreover, the Roquebrune-Cap-Martin train station is difficult to access by the departmental road (medium corniche). To cross the railway, pedestrians can use an underground passage, meanwhile cars get through a first bridge that links each side of the railway, and a second bridge that links the two car parking of the train station. Partially decommissioned, the train station is composed of under-exploited buildings, except the main hall which was recently transformed into an exhibitions hall by the association Cap Moderne. Indeed, with the recent opening of the E-1027 Villa, the station has acquired a special status since it serves a remarkable site that combines sustainable tourism and valorisation of the cultural heritage. A temporary reception hall and a shop have been set up to welcome the visitors of źCap Moderne╗ site. Therefore, it is important to reinforce and qualify the reception of passenger-tourists arriving at this station.

 

site 2 > habiter la gare de CarnolŔs: seasonal units

CarnolŔs railroads also create a relief distinctive boundary of the city. Indeed, the railroads follow a slope and clearly separate the city into two sides, from the residential coast to the main city, whose centrality is marked by the departmental road that crosses the city on the mid-coast road and connects it to Monaco, Menton, and Italy on the opposite direction. A small market place forms a diverticulum on this road. There are very few under-rail passages connecting the two parts of the city of CarnolŔs. Moreover, there are no real public spaces, opened places or signifying esplanades, underlining the lack of centrality but suggesting a polarity. It should be noted that the town hall is located on the crest hill, overviewing the two bays. The existing station is made of temporary shelters for travellers with no qualitative reception. In tangency to the railroads, the old Air Base 943 site, which is in the process of being transformed, offers a real opportunity to take advantage of some of its spaces to rethink the entire station, its centrality and its functionality, both at the scale of the city and the territory of Roquebrune Cap-Martin.

 

the goals

site 1 > Habiter la Gare de Roquebrune-Cap-Martin: artistic units

The reactivation of the station building and its adjoining spaces, such as the hall and the parking areas, offers the possibility of a new program related to the remarkable heritage of the area. This process may involve the creation of experimental space for workshops and ateliers organized by schools of architecture, design or art, renewing in a contemporary way the experimental spirit of the site initiated by its pioneers E. Gray, J. Badovici and Le Corbusier.

 

site 2 > habiter la gare de CarnolŔs: seasonal units

It would be interesting to take advantage of the upgrading of the train stop to transform it into a multimodal station, combining train, bus, car park, electric bicycles and facilitating the connections and the circulation on the territory. Adjacent to the train station of CarnolŔs, the released area of the old Air Base 943 offers the possibility of such urban space. Some of the BA943 buildings can be demolished, in order to release more space for the multimodal pole. Some other buildings can be reused for educational programs related to design and landscape education. The Botanical heritage must be considered, because some existing species are quite significant in the BA943 area. Following the works of Ferdinand Bac which inspired the Mexican architect Luis Barragan, the living heritage of the site must be enhanced as well as the attractive outside areas and park for locals and tourists, in order to stimulate a dynamic interaction and learning spaces. The released open area of the station can be used as experimental space by the students (or guest artists) of the School of Landscape of the Mediterranean. A Hotel Management School can be also planned on the site directly connected to tourism activities. In addition to this double educational program, a main residential program may be associated, such as student housing that in summer can be possibly turned into tourist accommodation.
