The main wall of ‘Breath Box’, an ephemeral installation created by NAS Architecture for the 2014 edition of the Festival des Architectures Vives in La Grande Motte, France, is reflective and faces the horizon.

“It not only recreates the image of the sea, it transforms by its own attributes.” says NAS. “The wind comes to lift the many reflective modules, providing a duality between visual experience and reflection ripple.”

“The recomposed mirror is deformed under the influence of wind, making them interact with the natural elements and the senses.”

“The experiment continues inside the pavilion. A light effect takes place throughout the day, accentuated by the movement of the mirrors. The pleasure of following the passage of fluctuating, pulsating wind, creating a mosaic of city landscape, grande-motte colour.”
