La Canopée is a site-specific sculpture designed for Lycée Michel Lucius. Spanning three meters in diameter, the sculpture is the centrepiece of a four-storey high atrium characterised by a large skylight an panoramic views from the surrounding balconies.

The sculpture harnesses natural daylight as a medium to transform the everyday architectural space, creating a bold statement within the minimalist interior of the atrium. The striking surface relief plays and refracts natural light – while obtaining a kinetic expression and striking colour transitions.
