Transport and Mankind
The Mobility exhibition space is an open space. It is an area that the visitor identifies not by its limits but by the formal familiarity of its components and by the ground on which all the installations rest. It is a fluid space. It would be like pinball balls describing Brownian movements and bouncing from one apparatus to another. The movement of the visitors is a major component of the scenography. We thus named this space: ‘The Pinball’.
"The oblique is the support of spatial continuity. It is continuity. Its development allows for partitioning without ever opposing displacement...". Claude Parent, in ‘Fluidity’ 1966-1996, Jean-Michel Place Edition.
The ground rises obliquely in its periphery. The inclined planes form a landscape of movement. The floor becomes a continuous space. This emerging ensemble composed of table, alcove, podium, lectern or screen defines the major part of the scenographic furniture.
