Exhibition “The artificial reefs of Prado”

The artificial reefs of Prado

From 4th February to 21th February, the 1st and 7th district city hall presents « The artificial reefs of Prado». This exhibition collects 25 works that gives you an actual look on 10 years of seabed restoration in Marseille.

This operation, named « Récifs Prado », is supported by Marseille city, and takes up the challenge to save damaged seabed. In order to realize this operation 27 000 m³ of artificial and innovative reefs were immersed to improve Mediterranean wildlife.

An artificial reef is a structure deliberately placed on the seabed in order to protect it. In this way numerous marine species settle in the reef and recreate a stable ecosystem.

Today, the biodiversity is back in Prado’s seabed ! Photografs et virtual reality will have you diving into the heart of this magic place.

Come and live the experience !
