Rooftop Arsenal

Rennes, 2016

In this conception one can find the necessary spatial continuity between the interior and exterior spaces. The general harmony of this vegetalised rooftop terrace will appear natural thanks to the choice of sedum and shrub varieties. The 'ribbon river' represents the River Vilaine. The river, being the sky's mirror, will be composed of a shiny material. The more the reproduction of a natural object differs from reality the more it takes on a magical or mythical status.
Within an urban environment, the garden becomes the central focal point, with the vertical planes and openings aiming to produce an artificial ensemble of visual sensations.
