For the past ten years, Philippe Calandre's work has revolved around architecture and, more recently, utopia. These utopias subtly echo a whole literary, architectural and cinematographic culture. We think in particular of Thomas More, founder of the concept of utopia in the sixteenth century, the city of Babel Fritz Lang in the film Metropolis and the futuristic creations of the architect Antonio Sant'Elia.
