Quick Take: Rudy Ricciotti's MuCEM

French Architect Rudy Ricciotti recently unveiled his completed Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (MuCEM), a cube of lacy concrete resting at the lip of the Mediterranean Sea. Located in Marseille, the museum chronicles more than 4,000 years of Mediterranean history with a collection of art and artifacts spread over 40,000 square feet of exhibition space. The project also includes a 335-seat theater. A delicate walkway bridges Ricciotti’s building with Fort Saint-Jean, the city’s historic military stronghold built in the 17th century.
