HEADQUARTERS OF THE NEWSPAPER LE MONDE

La Place du Monde

The new headquarters of the Le Monde Group is placed on the cityscape, like an inhabited bridge streaming with hot topics day and night.

 

The Archway covering the plaza sparks alive once night sets in.

A cloud of dynamic luminous points that undulates to the rhythm of inner activities.

 

This luminous skin diffuses animations coming from fragments of skies across the planet.

 

Just as Le Monde Group informs us about the state of the planet,

the work diffuses the skies of the world.

 

These skies have changed to the colors of Paris at night, oscillating between warm whites and cold whites.
