11:40 am
right away. even away from women you have a motorcycle license to join in on the fun. we've all been faced with the dilemma of what to do with boxes when they are empty well the french visual artist deviate goals to it has an idea he create structures like this one here and he makes it a collective project while he. has created huge cardboard buildings in cities all over the world bringing people of all walks of life together in the name of art while we went to northern france so what is the latest contemporary installation. from cardboard boxes tape and lots of helping hands are all that only means for his monumental art this
11:41 am
is urban art of another kind of 14 cardboard buildings up to 27 meters tall and weighing one and a half tons each he's having a city built within a city on the waterfront in the after friends his largest cardboard creation to date does that make him nervous. i'm sure. we could build a lot more here without with. the conditions actually make me more nervous than the construction itself is here let's remember. that was almost completely destroyed in the 2nd world war later french architect. designed housing for around 60000 people a masterpiece of urban planning. drew inspiration from the world heritage site for his cardboard installation.
11:42 am
and some pretty. you need to do to get what's fascinating work and everything like being an architect. i have kids and that's a boy i myself used to play with cardboard boxes which you're asking did you get your way you can be anything you want to a little kid a ship an airplane or whatever he said you know truth and. these monumental cardboard concepts would hardly be feasible without plenty of help from the people of. the buildings are made of some 3000 rolls of tape and 23000 boxes far fewer than bricks in the originals they take just one week of construction not much to build an entire city but it did require months of planning and precision drawings much like an architect with made. the 46 year old artist's favorite piece is the tower. but 1st.
11:43 am
this is a replica inspired by st joseph's in the mail ever if yours region is now best to test the limits of the limits we're going to build it's about 26 meters 26 and a half almost 27 meters high can win votes that. participatory art gets people involved. fabulous here in the open and nice weather it's extraordinary no. other she was like you get outside it's creation of. everybody works together so. it's a chance for everyone to pitch in and help out. the. the artist sees working and building together and the energy that is set free as an essential part of his art happenings now the buildings are almost done. with only a few metres to go a strong wind starts blowing with gusts of 60 kilometers an hour some of the
11:44 am
buildings start to sway. you to cook out of all the critical winds being a millionaire living here it's attacking to do much better said mr bet we can't get a foster home. but at the moment it's just too dangerous to have people working if you read this in. nature puts a premature end to the construction and in the morning damp the tower collapses. others fall victim to the wind. only 4 of the buildings came through the night intact the ruins of the others inspire the public to make a few spontaneous creations of their own. but oh yeah we've collected pieces from all over the place and now we've built this piece here it's a. big. her board city stands for just 2 days. and then the big demolition operation begins the only piece not to be torn apart
11:45 am
is this tower it's carefully hoisted up and carried away as requested by the people of. the demolition is also a part of the only vehicles ted's concept the cardboard city is meant to be ephemeral. so that's it now it's over this is really the end of the project. it only takes a little while before the place. but it's fun to watch the people laughing shouting . and enjoying themselves. even with the inclement weather the happening was a complete success and only pecans ted is already planning his next cardboard city . today if you want to tell
11:46 am
