Editions HYX has just released Groundscapes - Autres topographies. In this book, the architect Dominique Perrault presents his thoughts on the architecture of the "Groundscape". An idea, a concept, the architect has been exploring and experimenting with for many years in his projects and through his fictions. It is a work on shaping reality, through subterranean architecture, where is not a question of living but of marking and carving out places for urban life in the earth, this epidermis open to the sky.
Dominique Perrault Architecture and Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost Design designed the scenography of the “Galeristes” fair. The first edition will occur this weekend in Paris, in the “Carreau du Temple” Hall.
