The project is part of the facade renovation of the ‘Seine Loop’ domestic garbage incineration plant.
The nocturnal project creates a unique perception of the facades, relying on the glass material that wraps the main volumes of the building (6000 m²).
A graphic, dynamic image covers the glass architecture with a curtain of ‘rain’, echoing the ‘fire’ present inside the incineration furnaces. The light used belongs to the water and wind vocabulary: with a blue-green hue, it ‘cools’ and ‘calms’ the energy inside the building.
311 vertical luminous dashes form a homogeneous composition and come to life thanks to dynamic programming that varies their light intensity. Scenarios suggesting a mist from France’s Brittany or a torrential rain from the rainforest, alternating speed and softness, unfold throughout the night. The resulting nocturnal landscape takes on a unique meaning, that is visible from all directions.
