Designer Ito Morabito, who goes by Ora-Ito, purchased it as a collector might. &ldquo;Like you buy a piece of art, but architecture,&rdquo; he noted. After the acquisition, it became Ora-Ito&rsquo;s self-appointed mission to honor the iconic structure. Ora-Ito transformed the rooftop of Cit&eacute; Radieuse into MAMO, a contemporary art center dedicated to exhibitions and creative ateliers.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/71346990/le-corbusier-s-cit-radieuse-rooftop-gym-transformed-into-art-space Le Corbusier's Cité Radieuse rooftop gym transformed into art space Archinect 2013-04-15T18:36:00-04:00 >2013-08-09T13:44:07-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/7k/7k9qo62dvhbakpuz.jpg" width="514" height="319" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>French designer Ora-&Iuml;to is converting the famous Marseille roof terrace into a haven for contemporary art</p></em><br /><br /><p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/fu/fui2kgsbf6m4jpj7.jpg" title=""></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/37585350/corbu-s-marseille-s-cit-radieuse-damaged-by-fire Corbu's Marseille's Cité Radieuse damaged by fire Archinect 2012-02-10T11:22:00-05:00 >2012-02-10T15:26:59-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/71/719ht8ozxp4j74j5.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>One of France's most important landmarks of modernist architecture, La Cit&eacute; Radieuse housing estate in Marseille, built by the architect Le Corbusier, has been damaged by fire.
