CommentsFrançois Schuiten: “First illustration for scenographic concept of the renovation of the subway station “Arts and Crafts”. After participating in the competition for the renovation of the Museum of Arts and Crafts (our team is second coming), I received the request to design the set for the station. The project was difficult but exciting from beginning to end. Despite the reluctance to actually introduce copper and brass in an underground station, the RATP has accepted the project from the first illustrations. The achievement proves ultimately very close to the initial project.”
