French manor house by Dutch designer Kate Hume.
Alexis Tricoire is one of the leading plant design. With his vegetable studio atmosphere, created in 2009 he conducted the New World ephemeral installation that looks like a hut of 20m and 6m high, whose wooden structure is covered with a thousand plants.
Inside, the visitor senses – sight, hearing but also smell and feel through the plant structure – are harnessed to raise awareness of the issues addressed in the Grand Palais. A film made from the NASA data raises public awareness on the alarming increase of hot spots on the planet.
The artist wishes, through this installation, remember that it is necessary to refresh our cities by the association of architecture to the plant. This multi-sensory immersion is an act of artistic awareness.
Though largely built-up, the hillsides of the French Riviera town of Nice are still dotted with beautiful 19th-century manor homes, with lush grounds and tranquil views of the sea. It was on one such estate where a secluded Belle Époque cottage caught the eye of a young creative couple, who began hatching plans for updating the property the moment they stepped onto the grounds. source Lonny
