Original Version

This film follows the process of construction and deconstruction of a collaborative work by Tadashi Kawamata installed in the Parc de la Villette in Paris. Over the course of numerous workshops with high school students and volunteers, we witness the raising of a wooden tower of about twenty meters made from recycled materials. Testimonies and reactions from participants, organizers and art critic Emmanuelle Lequeux give us their impressions and the challenges of this collective madness.
