In 2013, Montpellier’s urban planning was given the motto “Folies du XXIe siècle”. The most impressive result is undoubtedly the “Arbre Blanc” on the banks of the river Lez, opposite the Antigone quarter. Around the tower-like residential skyscraper, wildly wide white balconies shoot up like bark mushrooms. Held in place by narrow tension elements, the balconies rise up to six metres. At this height, a vertical garden of balconies unfolds with an unheard-of lightness.
