French architecture practice Studio Odile Decq shares ‘The Green Pavilion,’ which had been completed on the occasion of Paris+ par Art Basel. Taking shape as a small glass structure, the pavilion occupies the city’s Jardin des Tuileries, a large public garden beside the Louvre. The project was commissioned for Odile Decq by Galerie Philippe Gravier, which sought a functional and occupiable art piece that will be used as a greenhouse. The work will be showcased within the bucolic site until November 5th, 2022, at which point it will be available for purchase.
