in situ atelier d’architecture, Annie Lebel and Stéphane Pratte, has worked since 1995 to define a multidisciplinary architectural practice: furniture, interior design, installation, museography, residential, cultural and commercial architecture, and urban design. This approach allows in situ to develop strong and original concepts that carry out a global vision. Catalyst in the process of creation, the concept of site is approached as an active, spatial and temporal data. Known for the clarity of its concepts and the refined making of its projects, in situ attribute great importance to the quality of the physical implementation of the project.
Stop motion is a kinetic installation which uses changes in lightning and in perspectives to play with the architecture, essentially producing a moving sculpture. Located at the heart of Le 1000’s entrance lobby, where commuters and light converge, the installation features reflecting plates cascading from the sky to freeze into a constellation of intriguing objects once they reach the ground. The successive “freeze frames” constitute chronophotographic images in the tradition of Étienne-Jules Marey (1830-1904), a chronophotography pioneer and influential figure in the history of cinema.
