Hippodrome Longchamp in Paris by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas

The project is part of the existing green spaces, a spontaneous continuity between nature and buildings, between what existed and what have been designed. This led us to the use of elements inspired by organic forms, that become architecture.

The poetic chalices of the stands, that remind of the convolvulus flower, creates plays of light and shadow through the corollas, underlining the design of the project. Architectural “flowers” that protect from the sun during the day and illuminate the interior spaces during the night.
