Project Description

Memory of the Lorraine steel industry Extension of the work "Tous les soleils", 2007, Claude Lévêque.
Witness to the steel industry of Lorraine, the U4 was invested in 2007 by the artist Claude Lévêque. Today his work extends inside the hall of casting. Our mission is to transcribe his work into an architectural project, to draw a visiting bridge. The architecture at the service of the artist’s work, the site, the memory of the place. Our work disappears to the benefit of the experience: The footbridge becomes invisible.
Intervention questions the rightness of action. Architecture is the link between the artist and the visitor, without paying any attention to it.
