The Marseille's Vegetal footprint
Light is a fundamental element in architecture. Glass allows to work on fin-gerprint systems and create interesting games of transparency and light.
In this urban project realized in 2013, the glass paver has proved to be an excellent response to the technical, functional and aesthetic constraints of the Seura architectural ﬁrm. The installation of two glass bridges made it possible to reconcile the fragmented neighborhoods by the passage of the A7 motorway.
The imprint imagined by the architect and made by La Rochère design ofﬁce represents a leaf. Frosted areas allow the water to ﬂow and guarantee pedestrians comfort and safety of use. This glass paver nicknamed “Pavé Végétal” was developed by La Rochère’s design office.
Light and airy, the glass pavement avoids a shadow effect too important for users of the motorway arriving in Marseille.
