The Breath Box, a wind shelter by NAS Architecture, was created for the 2014 Festival des Architectures Vives à La Grande Motte. The naturalist design reflects the seaside view and catches the wind in motion. Constructed with wooden slats and hanging mirror panels, the installation celebrates wind more than it deters it, ultimately serving as a fresh way to engage with land, sea, and sky.
