Barani in Nice

The Nice Tram terminal started as a commission for a technical piece of infrastructure (including the terminus tram stop, a maintenance department, a park-and-ride parking lot, offices, control rooms for tramway traffic, and small-scale commerce) and became an elegant solution that resolves aspects of architecture, landscape architecture and urban planning, besides satisfying the brief.  In the centrifugal movement activated by the multimodal center, housing blocks built in the 60s and 70s are now sucked up by the city and reconnected to it; the residual space between a motorway, side roads become worthy of the new centre; pedestrians are treated to clear walking routes, and the tram maintenance crews work in halls full of natural light.
