The new MuCEM, Museum of Civilization in Europe and the Mediterranean, in Marseille, near the old port was designed by Rudy Ricciotti.

Dedicated to the theme of the 'Mediterranean', the building, occupying an area of about 40,000 square meters, was designed as a multi-purpose container for cultural initiatives, exhibitions, theatre shows, musical performances and film screenings.

Ricciotti has designed a parallelepiped located on the pier J4, connected to the nearby 15th century fortress of Saint Jean by a suspended walkway that runs around the building.
