1. Design and poetry on the water
The Belvedere on the Vilaine by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, in Rennes
Head to Rennes and the Mail district for an arty version of the capital. An odd-looking structure floats on the Vilaine, at the foot of the Jean Nouvel building and close to the Horizons towers built in the 1970s by Georges Maillols. It is born of the imagination of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Breton designers with international fame. Moored to the bank, the slender belvedere can be visited. When night falls, it projects magical reflections on the water. It’s elegant and brilliant!
