"It looks like the South. Time is long. And life surely. Over a million years. And always in summer." The South, Nino Ferrer.

Occitanie was created in 2016 when the Midi-Pyrénées and Languedoc-Roussillon regions where merged. Consequently, it is now one of the largest regions in France.

He imaged a place that would bring together all the necessities for a family in community life. A environemnt with a school, nursery, small shops, swimming pool and a library. In France there are 5 examples of its concept. La Cité Radieuse in Marseille is one of them. It was also called the "House of the Fada".
