DÉRIVE DES RIVES
Thiou / Palais de l'Île
A sphere 6 meters in diameter supports three types of climbing plants: European, African, and Asian. Afloat on the Thiou (the Annecy Lake spillway), the sphere is watered by the river. A piece that weaves connections between architectural ornamentation and plants.
Architect and landscaper, Jean-Philippe Poirée-Ville is inspired by the rhythm of the seasons and the spirit of elevation that flora evokes in him. Thus, he combines light and vegetation so as to sublime nature.
