Cétacé. An onomatopoeic sound of a sneeze? Cétacé! Bless you. Or it’s the name of a crafty artwork which features along Paris’ Voies Sur Berges. By now you may have become familiar with Voies Sur Berges as it’s one of my favourite places to go around Paris. There’s just so many ways of enjoying the place. On this occasion I spotted the new artwork whilst strolling there with a friend.
And until October 31st if you meander along near the bridge Concorde along Voies Sur Berges you’ll be greeted by this novel artwork – described as being an intersection where craft and architecture meets landscape. Les Saprophytes created it, who are a group of architects and landscape designers who collectively explore the cities architecture.
The group are labelling their mission something along the lines of Massive Organic Architecture. Their aim is to promote and communicate the city to us in novel ways. I’d recommend putting aside a good 2 hours to simply take a stroll along this stretch of the River Seine. The reason being, that there’s no telling what’ll pop up there next.
