It is probably not Zaha Hadid’s finest work, but the 147 m high CMA-CGM tower has become a bold fixture in Marseille’s otherwise low-fi skyline. The tower is a bit of an eyesore (coming from great fans of Zaha Hadid’s work) but best enjoyed at sunset when the sun reflects on its mirrored surface to create a somehow magical spectacle. Alas, it’s not open to the public as it’s the head office of a shipping conglomerate. Check out Exmagina’s lovely tilt-shifted short film about it.
