“Luminous Occuli”
The “electroluminescent sign” of the quai Malaquais…


The light construction is based on the shapes and specific characters of the three facade architectures: Foch, Petit Chimay and Grand Chimay. From a distance, the three occuli of the Foch building and the summit glass roof of the Petit Chimay are the only remarkable elements that are perceptible in all observation conditions. They are a sign in the urban night and become a remarkable signal call in the urban environment of the district. In close-up views, the surroundings of the site form the setting and the urban framework of the buildings.
