Concéntrico and La Forêt Monumentale join together in this call to propose an urban intervention in the city of Rouen through a temporary installation that evokes the natural heritage and the forest of this French city. The installation will take place in September 2019.

La Forêt Monumentale, the biannual Festival of Monumental Art organised by the Métropole de Rouen Normandie, proposes the creation of 12 monumental artworks that will form a route in the heart of the forest that surrounds the city. Reflection on the idea of the urban domain, and the enhancement of natural heritage are brought together in this contest.

Concéntrico is the Logroño International Festival of Architecture and Design, open to all citizens and visitors, with the aim of discovering and rediscovering the areas of interest within the Historic City Centre. The festival invites visitors to explore these spaces through installations that create a connection between the interior courtyards, hidden spaces and squares that usually go unnoticed in the day-to-day.
