The project is located in Evian, France. Evian is part of the growing network of the lemanic metropole. The hub aims to create an interface between different mobilities, allowing a transition between land and sea and harboring public space. It is conceived as a bridge between the road and the port, a rectilinear connection between two points. The triangulated structure acts as a megastructure, permanent and heavy-duty, where smaller, more ephemeral installations such as retail, restaurants, and kiosks can activate the main space. Suspended in the void are public baths, presenting a more delicate atmosphere within the rough porous shell.
