“It is not the right angle that attracts me, nor the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free and sensual curve that I find in the body of the beloved
woman.” - Oscar Niemeyer

The spheres, dressed in embroidery, open a dialogue between full and void. Indeed, the texture of the lace creates a game of shadow and light. Applied on floating spheres, it offers roundness reflexions on the water.

Convinced that the practice of an architect cannot be without a certain openness to different fields, the team formed by Marion Moustey and Alexandre Arcens seeks to explore architecture through multiple eyes. It is with the same ambition that both approach their studies in the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier. Enriched by individual experiences acquired through the participation in various international competitions and workshops, they undertake their degrees at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier for one, the Arkitektskolen Aarhus Denmark for other. This common interest in the mixing of areas of studies and the work at various scales makes them approach architecture with a guenuine sensitivity.
