Paganism (from Latin paganus, meaning « country dweller », « rustic ») is a blanket term, typically used to refer to religious traditions which are polytheistic or indigenous. It is primarily used in a historical context, referring to Greco-Roman polytheism as well as the polytheistic traditions of Europe and North Africa before Christianization. [Wikipedia]

This installation, shown on the main facade of the Museum of archaeology of Toulouse, south of France, was inspired by a scultpure of a bacchanalian head from the 3rd century (see picture below). This sculpture had been found at the end of the 17th century and exhibited as an example of an antique pagan idol since then.

Using the idea of polymorphism that is a feature of the ancient gods, the head becomes almost invisible when integrated to the structure made of an abstract network of straight lines. The light will reveal several patterns, from abstract constellations to enigmatic symbols that will affect the rest of the building.

Hala Stulecia, Wroclaw, Polande.

Lorsqu’il avait ouvert, le Hala Stulecia était la plus grande structure en béton armé au monde avec un diamètre de 65m.

La pièce proposée pour le halle du Centenaire de Wroclaw est basé autour de la notion d’intemporalité dans l’architecture, et l’idée de comment traduire le future tout au long du 20e siècle.

Partant des années 10 comme point de départ, des références historiques et artistiques telles que Metropolis de Fritz Lang ou les projets utopiques d’Archigram ont été utilisées pour révéler l’architecture à travers l’espace.
Romain Tardy et Thomas Vaquié étaient intéressés à essayer de créer une vision de l’avenir sans référence de temps précis, un avenir intemporel.

When opened, Hala Stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier.

The piece proposed for the Centennial Hall of Wroclaw is based around the notion of timelessness in architecture, and the idea of what future has meant throughout the 20th century.

Taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space.
By using references such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis or the utopian projects of Archigram to confront the different visions of the future at different times, Romain Tardy and Thomas Vaquié were interested in trying to create a vision of a future with no precise time reference. A timeless future.
