The project of the military « red tent » gives another radical image based on the archetype of military tents. The textile is initially beige or kaki, in a very voluntary manner, like the intervention of an artiste, the fabric is suddenly turned into red, it is transvestied, touched in the very heart of the fibres.
The main idea is to impose to the space of the street and of the city an archetype out of its initial geographical context. By playing on the common imaginary, the object of fiction is thus revealed by the geographical move of a strong architectural archetype.
Once away from its initial space, the object reflects a sideways image that moves the surrounding urban space. The project is made of a facade of red oiled fabric, hold by natural leather straps and suspended by a metallic structure. This fabric is held at the bottom by sand bags. The entrance is through a metallic chamber.
