2018 – City of Economy and Money (CEM)
DescriptionIn a prestigious building erected on horse-back between the 19th. and 20th. century, the Bank of France has decided to create a place dedicated to money, to its movements, to its history… we have been developing a very contemporary environment, creating a dialogue with hte existing scenery, fairly heavy with décorations and thus expressing its history. The visit ends up in the vault, an incredible place accessible only through a « drawbridge »moving over moats filled with water…and even fishes ! Sadly, this project was not finished by the Confino Agency. Since it was managed by a bunch of overpaid nitwits, the project was delayed by five years. We had to continue working without additional fees although the pathetic loosers were still « being paid ». This provoked the end of the Confino Agency that now continues its activities under the name « Alphabeth ». The work was successfully completed by the Explosition Agency.
