"A Much Discussed Quarter"

The success of Quartier Antigone, built during the 1980s remains much debated. The stone-colored concrete edifices are the work of architect Ricardo Bofill and the whole development has been described as a parody of neo-classicism. The quarter is located just behind the humongous shopping center, Polygone and was designed as an extension of the city center towards the River Lez. The central avenue with its series of pedestrianized squares leads down to the enormous semi-circle of the Esplanade de l'Europe. While at times, the quarter can resemble a gigantic tomb, it is in fact a very pleasant and lively area.
