Vasarely Foundation

Aix en Provence - Museum

Inaugurated in 1976, the architectonic center of Aix-en-Provence reflects the essence of Vasarely’s mission. Designed as a place of exchange, experiments and new encounters, this multi-disciplinary “laboratory” would bring together plastic arts, architecture, new technologies, chemistry, and other disciplines. The “cité polychrome du bonheur” (“polychromatic city of happiness”) was born.

Designed by Vasarely in collaboration with architects Jean Sonnier,
Dominique Ronsseray and Claude Pradel-Lebar, the 5,000 sq. meter
building is an example of the very same urban design which the Foundation seeks to promote.

Sixteen hexagon-based modules are embedded in a gigantic building
using technology and materials endorsed by modern art movements.
The honeycomb structure presents various models of the integration
of plastic arts and architecture, using optical art as its common
ground.
