The island of Nodeul turns into a place dedicated to music. There is a concert hall with 1500 seats, a troglodyte room for experimental music, a large concert area on an open lawn, accompanying equipment (music schools, theater, etc.). The water in summer thanks to pontoons deployed and organize on the covered lawns in winter. The project, which received the jury prize, is designed as an instruction manual for an electronic device with variable geometry combining the idea of mobility with an architectural writing inspired by the 5 senses: the opera is declined in acid colors, One building evokes sweetness and another sweetness. The canopy consists of several hundred tightly woven cables in order to create variations in mesh density or to leave voids above certain parts of the program. Stretched at either end, the cables are oriented either upwards or downwards to create a three-dimensional volume. To maintain the cables at these altitudes, metal spacers are used, which keep the cables apart from each other. This complex system of braided cables rests on a light structure of posts and metal beams self-bracing by the tension of the cables.
