Aux Quatre Arrondissements
A vault completes, on the axis, the existing pediment of the building on the Boulevard de La Villette giving it a new statute. The typology is simple and economical. It is a barrel vault with wooden structure, open at one end onto the boulevard and at the other end onto the roofs of Paris. The elevation has an intrados and an extrados. The intrados is made of clear wood giving the interior space a warm atmosphere. The extrados is a sheet of metal capturing the colors of the Parisian sky.
