High Tide…Low Tide , 1992, Aber Wrac'h, France

The project is located in the middle of l’Aber Vrac’h, in Brittany where the tide imposes a perpetual transformation, modifying the surface twice per day, erasing the last memory for a new invitation to discovery.

The hotel is composed of a long barge anchored in the sand along which, independent rooms are connected by articulated arms.

At high tide, the long barge disappears, immersed under the water leaving the rooms to float alongside it.
