The project consists in a series of "infinite" that connects 3 coordinates: +6.6, +3.3 two areas offered by the protostructure for potential intervention...

...And continues in the lake

The line, an infinite succession of points, is a minimalistic way to execute a single operation to create that link, vanishing in the water.

The tilt of 4.5° gives an orientation towards the lake.

Not only is it a vertical transition but also a horizontal one linking both ends of the protostructure as well as the interior and exterior.

                Each moment of the experience gives a glimpse of the lake.

                A narow passage adapted for one person, creating a form of infinite personal intimacy.

               The feeling of continuity ahead could be assimilated to a slow motion diving experience into the water.
