Decq discusses a project for a restaurant at Charles Garnier’s Paris Opera. She reviews the history of the building and the decision to modify a former carriage entrance for the restaurant. Decq explains her response to the constraints of the project and the struggle between establishing views of the dome from beneath and increasing proximity to the facade at the mezzanine. The form of the mezzanine establishes unique ambiances for the spaces above and below. She goes on to present a French Regional Contemporary Art Funds (FRAC) museum in Rennes, featuring a monumental work by Aur?lie Nemours.
