The ZIG ZAG pavilion offers a new architectural experience. Built with openwork terracotta bricks, which give transparency to the walls, it allows the summer breeze to come in bringing its breath. Permeability is key; the visual pattern of the bricks multiplies their effect when the walls overlap, the silhouettes of the bodies move through these walls, and the shadows retrace and reconstruct the pattern of the floor. It is a novel experience reminiscent of modern architecture in the tropics, and which, in the middle of the esplanade of La Défense, embodies a playful freshness inviting us to relax and get lost in its walls.
The contemporary art exhibition Les Extatiques can be visited in the gardens of La Seine Musicale and on the esplanade of Paris La Défense from June 26 to October 4, 2020.
An exhibition organized by Paris La Défense and the Department of Hauts-de-Seine
