Moving the city to the sea

Lorient, 2000

Initially, this project was a critical response to the competition for the transformation of the Lorient submarine base into a theme park. We pursued the project further, and it was presented at the Venice Biennale in 2000 as an open question: Why wouldn t Lorient, a city that has turned its back on the sea since the 17th century, take advantage of the submarine base to establish future development, a new centre, a new image ?
