INSTALLATION / RESEARCH

Monumental rooftop artwork on the Belgo building that draws attention to the enormous surface and untapped potential which the city’s roofs represent. Giant urban canvas presented at the Biennale de Montréal 2004, the roof calls upon our sensibility to address the question of water and heat islands in the age of sustainable development.
