This monograph presents the work of artist Philippe Allard. More than 15 years of creation and wandering to conceive large-scale works. In his research, Allard diverts the architectural function and the accumulated waste object without neglecting the poetry of space and light. He has created monumental installations that address our environmental concerns with aestheticism and irony. Through an essay by the author Cynthia Fecteau, the journey of these projects becomes philosophical and opens up to a poetics of space.
