Panorama - La Cite

TypeOriginal, Acrylique, crayon
Size51 x 68 cm
CommentsFrançois Schuiten: “The public is facing a modern city of skyscrapers and buildings connected by an infinite set of roads. Light animates these towers, making us change the landscape through other urban projects evoking Le Corbusier and Niemeyer. On the horizon, there are the pyramidal silhouette of a Japanese city built on the sea”
