FAV 2013: La Grande Motte by David Hamerman

• July 23, 2013

For La Grande Motte‘s FAV 2013, the Pavilion was realized by an architect from Languedoc Roussillon’s region, David Hamerman who graduated from the Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture of Montpellier.

Memory … memory and the sea … a song by Léo Ferré. This city and its forms are crimping the Mediterranean are the testimony of an era. A moment of generosity where holidays for all became a project. The city reflects this. A wilderness where the thought came to embrace nature into culture. Culture built space … through light, shape and material. A moment of freedom when special architecture and the landscape returned to resonate to organize a thought, a moment of architecture …alive. Somehow, the Grande Motte is a festival, a magical place flooded with symbols, an ode to the sea, the sun and wind. Its main designer, Jean Balladur dreamed of pyramids share their moldings symbolize the masculine and the feminine. A little Aztec qu’égyptiennes there yet fail Moses to come open sea in two. The pavilion is a tribute to this thought, in love with a site, a desire to offer the kind of architecture and views of the sea to the greatest number. Sea, pines, and a lot of steel, tens of thousands of son of steel structure, carving, store drawing of a city become a cult. Steel … and a few pine needles. A wave which is crossed in a few seconds, a wave of steel that will not punctuate Walker … An ode to the sea, the sun and wind.
