As though it was ripped out of a building, the floating room was recently installed in Nantes, France, and has a wall that seems to be torn apart, revealing bricks, plaster and wood construction. The tiny space is accessible via a ladder that also appears to be the only load-bearing element in the entire structure, which miraculously maintains its balance.
The mock ladder elevates the room 30 feet off the ground and leans against one of its French-styled windows. The entire structure, which looks like a movie set from an adaptation of “Romeo and Juliet,” is one of the exhibited art pieces that transforms the entire city of Nantes into an art gallery.
