Intro

Brise-Vent Havre – Architecture Competition

With the ambitious goal of recovering the forgotten concrete structure of the Brise-Vent, this new competition aims to design a one-of-a-kind Museum facing the port of Le Havre.

As the gigantic grey sail no longer serves its original purpose of shielding the harbour from wind gusts, the time to envision an urban regeneration project has finally come. Although it is definitely a challenging architecture to reimagine, its adaptation to a contemporary program would allow the city to get back an extraordinary public space, currently abandoned to itself.

The competition explicitly requires full attention to the social aspects of the proposal, encouraging designers to work on a hybrid program linked to an everyday use, open both to the local community and international tourists. How would it be possible to transform this captivating ruin into a cultural hub open seven days a week?
