The 5th Festival of “Architectures Vives” organised by Association “Champ Libre”, ran for four days in Montpellier. Architects from around the world were gathered to create an installation in the courtyards of private mansions.
An abstract pattern was split at random into three layers, becoming an obstacle to the usual run of the sun, producing short-lived motifs.
Every day, the changeable shadow comes to slide on the surfaces which make up the courtyard. At one precise moment, once a day, the key moment reconstitutes on the ground the word «OMBRE» (shadow).
