Between zinc and sky is an unexplored dimension of the French capital. The roofs conceal one of the most typical faces of Paris, a chaotic horizon sculpted by architectural trends over the centuries.

Some people break the law roaming the city heights, others enjoy the magnificent views, relax in hidden gardens or bath in private swimming pools.

These encounters lead to a reflection on life in an urban environment. With a few changes, the rooftops could provide an answer to the lack of space, fresh air, horizon and conviviality.
