Nicolas Dorval Bory Architect designed an extension artist residency for the International Art & Landscape Center on the island of Vassivière. Situated in the middle of an artificial hydro-electric lake, the project explores the concept of ”de-spatialization” and “blurred architecture” by breaking the building components down into fragments, lines and dots. The building gradually begins to dissolve allowing “its temporal dimension to be experienced as its geometrical dimensions disappear into architecture and landscape.” The team studied time progression to invent a new kind of space and organization based on their conceptual ideas.
