Docks de Paris by Jakob+MacFarlane

The Docks of Paris is a long, thin building built in concrete at the turn of the last century, that was a depot for goods brought up the Seine by barge. In 2004, the city of Paris launched a competition to create a new cultural building on the site. Whether or not to keep the existing concrete structure was a choice left to the participants. Jakob+MacFarlane opted to retain the existing structure and use it to form and influence the new project.
