LE CAVEAU: is a complex construction made ​​of stone gabions supporting a green platform;

CYCLOPS: is a giant cone with 8 meters in diameter suspended over the forest floor;

MAISON DE JACQUES: is a nice home for a bean forest where children can play hide-and-seek in the many secret gardens;

TiiLT: 24 tents that fill the space like a school of fish or a flock of birds;

CARBONE: offers a charred tree trunk, which captures carbon during its entire life and contributes to the rebirth of the forest.
