The New Monaco Yacht Club by Sir Norman Foster


Stairway to heaven or perhaps simply a stairway in the new Monaco Yacht Club.  This is slowly rising on the opposite side of Port Hercule to the present yacht club.

Designed by Sir Norman Foster you can see how it will eventually look by clicking on the link.

Thirty years ago .. I used to come here (between the port entrance and the Hotel Loews as it was called then), for a swim in the evening. And at that time people were complaining about crowds and how overrun Monaco was, then. When I see this new projects unfold ..

Love this new tourist attraction of Monaco. Maybe they should organise a sight-seeing tour which shows all the construction projects of Monaco in working. Will change a little bit the usual thing, casino, palace, etc.

The airborne stairway is an extraordinary capture.

love how Monaco manipulates the very little land they have. based on the projections, this will be a very attractive feature that will not pollute the already crowded area.
