Sleeping Giants


Space is a highly valued good in cities. Density also creates diversity, still, living in a metropolis can feel like living in a shoe box. The French artists Ella & Pitr create stories about density on city roofs in their project “Sommeils Lourds” (Deep Sleep). Their giants can’t be squeezed into a normal city-flat. Instead, they rest on roofs, in backyards and storage spaces. See the giants sleep in our image gallery.
