THE WIND CATHEDRAL
Client : Horizons
Location : Saint-Victor-la-Riviere, France
Status : Completed 2017
The "Wind Cathedral” is a site specific architectural structure that both protects and shelters the inhabitant while also celebrating the forces of nature through a constantly changing interior space.
The artwork is a site specific response to the Perdue cross (meaning the lost cross in English) which was placed in this location following the tragic death of a woman who become lost 200 years ago and ultimately perished in a terrible storm on the site. The Wind Cathedral surrounds this cross with a new space which recognises the story of the woman’s death and allows the visitor to contemplate their own relationship with the natural world.
The project was located at the village of Victor-Saint-la Riviere in the Sancy Massif in France and was constructed as part of the environmental art exhibition “Horizons”.
