From the architect. French Photographer Stéphane Chalmeau shared with us "Manny", a  project by Tétrarc.

The building is located in Nantes, France, in a creative arts district behind the Courthouse. The project is an initiative by the Coupechoux Design Group in partnership with Nantes developer Axel Colin, and will provide a space for architecture and creative arts businesses, while open to the city and the neighborhood trough a public showroom on the ground floor, hosting exhibits, conferences and other events

The chaotic aluminium skin protects the interior by filtering the direct sunlight, creating a dynamic facade that changes during the day with different reflections.
