10cm restaurant is a rethinking of relationship between human, dining table and water.
What if that one moment in a year we celebrate the flooding of the Seine instead of fearing it?
What if water becomes part of the slab to enclose a restaurant?
What if we hear the sound of wave while enjoying French Cuisine?
Cantilevering the building over the Seine by 6 meters;
setting sliding doors between river bank;
dropping the riverfront curtain wall by 10 cm;
hanging the dining table to the ceiling;
letting the people in,
letting the water in.
