In this proposal for a summer on the “L’esplanade de Montbenon” in Lausanne, we bring the dialectic between landscape as a dynamic changing entity and landscape as an artifact to look at. The factor of time is captured with the movement of shadows, given through the sun, with the movement of the winds, which blow through this religion, and even through the imperceptible geological movements that continue to form this landscape. This place is enhanced as a site of meeting in the city, open to temporary transformations through manifestation, and active and spontaneous participation of the inhabitants and visitors of this city. From the height of the statue of Wilhelm Tell the intervention appears like a scene of moving waves, the ideal continuation of the lake in front of the mountains.
