The unique Nature of the site is full of potential poetic. This steel skeleton renders that poetic, renders what is always there, the essence of the place. The installation, a lightweight steel structure, consists of two kinds of frame ,a basic skeleton of very thin steel columns and a secondary «cloud frame» formed of cubic components optimizing the strength of the structure. As a result we have a kind of translucent element constantly changing along with the atmosphere, or perhaps some kind of matter trying to dissolve or concentrate in a context. To reach the observation deck the visitor has to follow a spiral-like route of ramps and stairs as he becomes a part of the environment. The whole procedure is like a ritual culminating in a convergence of man and place on the observation deck as the whole landscape reveals.
