  • The crane designed for this space in the heart of Paris is the result of a deep reflection on the place and the architectural and artistic influences of the city. The forms that inspired the crane come from the liberty elements and the industrial structures that we can find in the city: from metro stations, to the Eiffel Tower itself. As requested by the ''Ports de Paris'', we had to have particular attention to the integration of the crane in such central and touristic area that is located between the Eiffel Tower, Palais de Tokyo and the contemporary Museum of Quai Branly. The research was not only formal, but also logistical and spacial: from the design of the surface for loading and unloading, to the storage of containers.
