The Villa Albertine in New York is a place out of Time, out of the City crazyness. Its lobby is all made of White marble, with a central renaissance statue, Under a polychromatic bas relief. This dôme is surrounded by a range of White Columns.
This unusual scene had to be staged with all the contemporaneity that the villa Albertine inspires us.
The dome and the columns are circled by a strong line with tension. Under the dome vertical luminaires are integrated between the columns like an anachronic piece of metal with mirror. This is the staging of the staging.
