The skeleton of a boat, 27m of skeleton, ran aground in a room of the building of the Trocadéro. Where from does it comes, who pushed it to there? it transports projects hidden in drawers, unpublished treasures: maybe they will see one day the light … It is maybe that, architecture : a boat that takes the sea and which does not know in which port it will stop, which adventures it will cross … Will it arrive at its destination? In which conditions?

A big wooden enlightened element (inspirations: boat’s structure, vertebral column of a big animal) present the prize-winners and their projects with a system of «participation of the visitor ». In a dark atmosphere, it is necessary to open « Lids » to discover the exposed projects, only the « portrait » and the presentation of the team remain always visible. Elements close then « alone » once the left visitor.
