The modernity of Bordeaux is all around us, sometimes hidden, sometimes obvious, always ever-resent. In 1990s modernity spread once again through the city on both sides of the river. Large-scale public facilities contributed to the development of the city in the 20th century while the tram network forms the basis for the 21th century metropolis.The riversides have become pedestrian areas for all to enjoy with the “Miroir d’eau” (2013) conceived by the fountain engineer Jean-Max LlorcaIn the north, from the area around the lake to the wet docks with the “Cité du Vin” (2016 XTU agency) and the new bridge Jacques-Chaban-Delmas (2013).
