Mutabilis Paysage: Located a few hundred meters from the cliffs of Paluel and not far from its nuclear power plant, “Le Clos des Fées” is the extension of the hamlet of Conteville. Clos has 18 individual houses organized around courées, 2 accommodation facilities and three artists’ studios. Master plan was carried out with a focus on providing large open spaces whilst avoiding urban sprawl. Housing is located on the west side of the site, so it contributes significantly to reducing the wind from the sea. Wind is also the engine which gives the energy to the project. Wind farm empowers the hydraulic system for the water ponds. Some of the lighting incorporated in the sculptures is also wind dependant, so the intensity of light varies according to wind.
