About the artwork

Laurent Dequick, a professional architect, often showcases buildings and architectural heritage in his photos. Here, he goes further by integrating blueprints of each building, these line drawings that represent all of the proportions of the various dots or lines of a figure. “This is the crux of architecture: between the idea and the construction,” he explains. “It all starts with a line, and from the line form must emerge.” It is the search for the perfect harmony of forms, materials, symbols, and uses.”

Anecdote

Begun in the seventeenth century, the construction site of the Capitole took nearly two hundred years. Today, its 11,000 square-metre surface is home to the Hôtel de Ville, a tourist office and a dungeon.
