The interdisciplinary interaction between all domains is formal and symbiotically- lives as recipient, creator and protagonist, in one three-dimensional object with open space architecture which visualizes a true palace of minds in an abstract way. The transformation from a realistic drawing of a lily blossom into a conglomerate of geometrically shaped triangles illustrates the abstraction thought , which constitutes the basis of any philosophical logic .

To create "L` apartment des philosophes" took 8 months.
