Floor markings of the square in Ivry
The “Ivry Square” that has been designed by BOARD in collaboration with STAR – strategies and architecture is receiving its last details while its construction is being finalized. One of the floor markings will be a large zebra crossing and another one a quote from the French anthropologist Françoise Héritier stating “Respirer l’odeur secrète de goudron et de mer dans les cheveux sur la tempe de quelqu’un qu’on aime…” (“Breathing in the secret smell of tar and sea in the hair on the temple of someone you love…”).
