Made up of five giant buoys moored to a 40-meter diameter deck, the installation is aimed at a wide audience, offering several ideas of use. The deck is a soothing walk, which invites contemplation of the large white volumes in their relationship

Vibrant under the twists and jumps, the whole structure reacts to spontaneous movements; it resonates with the joyful spirit of people it amplifies in return. The 200-meter long handrail solidifies the entire design, which seems to almost come to life from so much energy transfer.

Specifically, Lily is 500 hours of studies, 1400 hours of realization, 1200 hours of assembly on the spot. It consists of 
1000m2 of canvas, 410m2 of braided mesh, and 450m3 of air.
