Serie "The Massilia Triad » / Allianz Tower
The facade of precast white concrete panels reproduce the honeycomb effect. The building is located in the first business district of Marseille. Like bees in a hive, workers of the Allianz tower are working hard in this honeycomb structure.
Before the 70's Marseille has no business district, or office tower. In 1970, when the work of what was initially the AGF Tour is launched, the SINVIM commissioned the building of the highest offices in the city. Just as the CMA-CGM tower, construction of the Mediterranean tower is part of the development of a former industrial area of the city, located between Place Castellane and Prado train station in the 6th arrondissement.
The Allianz tower (former AGF, Mediterranean) is the third highest of Marseille behind The Grand PAVOIS and CMA-CGM Tower.
