Argentina’s flora and fauna have inspired the artists in this programme to recover buildings and sand silos which have been abandoned for years. The programme is part of the current project for F Dock, which will be converted into a riverside promenade. However, the manager responsible for the Port’s project stresses that the idea is for the Sand Terminal’s equipment to be brought back into use as well, as it can play an essential role in construction work around the city.
Euroméditerranée has launched a call for expressions of interest for nine sites yet to be allocated in the port hinterland zone. The aim is to host economic or cultural activities there for between one and five years. The strategy is also intended to enable current and future residents and users to reclaim the site in redevelopment.
