A "bateau-mouche" in Manhattan
New York 1999
First glass enclosed dinner cruise vessel in New-York, this steel and glass beetle encloses a space designed like a theater stage, with visible technical equipments on a red velvet background. Theater inside, show outside: the glass enclosure, smooth and abstract, presents through large curved volumes the vertiginous vertical vision of Manhattan. A succession of carapaces protects it as a samuraï armour.
