Installation

Quai de Southampton
Since May 27, 2017

Two monumental arches made of 36 shipping containers intertwine, culminating at 25 metres above the ground. Inspired by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi's use of catenary curves, Vincent Ganivet likes to build arches, domes, and cupolas, which resemble the structures of Roman cathedrals. Using shipping containers – as a nod to port activities – he has managed to give these gigantic straight-lined structures amazing grace and subtlety.

VINCI Construction France is the proud sponsor of this permanent installation
