Franklin Azzi is pleased to participate in the first edition of Genius Loci, an immersive exhibition curated by Marion Vignal.
The architect signs his first artistic creation with LE SAINT, a light installation in reference to the spirituality of the site of the villa L'Ange Volant and its creator Gio Ponti. Suspended in the trees, the neon and steel ring levitates, as if by miracle, above the entrance courtyard, defying the laws of gravity.
With the support of AURIGE and DUNOD MALLIER, ironworkers.
