Installed at Abattoirs Museum-FRAC Occitanie Toulouse as part of the exhibition "100 possible challenges", The Cube is a work that is both simple and complex.

03.04.18  Opus 5: Abbey of Ardenne

An emblematic building of Norman heritage, the Ardenne Abbey built between the 13th and 17th centuries did not escape the bombings of the Second World War.

30.03.18  Gundry & Ducker : North Audley Canteen

Inspired by the golden age of Hollywood, this small underground bar has enough to attract the crowds of workers in the Mayfair district of London (UK) after their hard day's work. A place from another time signed by Gundry & Ducker, where noble materials, pastel shades and comfortable furniture create a friendly atmosphere.

29.03.18  Ionna Vautrin: Factory

29.03.18  Toggle Studio: Luminous Drapes

Overlooking the square of the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Center in Kuwait City, Kuwait, Studio Toggle's pavilion to host the cultural forum "The Human Capital 2018" is a light and ethereal meeting place.

28.03.18  James Brittain : Habitat 67

More than 50 years after its completion, the Habitat 67 Canadian Housing Complex continues to fascinate; especially the photographer James Brittain who captures the 365 prefabricated concrete units composing the work conceived in the 1960 years by the architect Moshe Safdi. Beyond the impressive ensemble, it is the daily life of its hundreds of inhabitants that one discovers here.

Housing and bus center in full 14e arrondissement of Paris ... An assembly more than original. And yet!
