This Rock Is Really A House! Fantastic!

ANTOINE was a commission by the artist residency Verbier 3d Foundation. It was self-built in the village and transported to the high-altitude sculpture park. The 6 weeks residency allowed for the construction of what can be considered an inhabited sculpture that follows the tradition of architecture-sculpture described by artist André Bloc and developed physically by André Bloc and Claude Parent.
It is inspiring to see how well a constructed item can be made to fit in with nature and help the natural beauty instead of harm it.
