An expo of sculptures by Paul Corbineau.
Discover 20 different species of tree either softwood or hardwood and their luxurious sexuality with little grain of fantasy! Trees have forever been colonising the earth via their seeds. Their reproductive organs are either discrete or flamboyant. Their seeds are of diverse sizes and are more or less known to us. The sculptures of this expo are all fashioned in the wood of the represented species. They should be read from top to bottom so as to get a better understanding of the creation of the seeds.

Expo “Notre Dame de Paris » The art of carpentry – Grand palais lower lever

Fifteen young carpenters and thirteen heritage architecture students studied, researched, designed, shaped and assembled these reproductions in order to highlight this wooden frame, now lost by fire, which was called “the forest”. Whether one is a believer or not, Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral remains a masterpiece of architecture and construction. It is in the hearts of Parisians and most people who have ever visited it.

This expo aims to show the know-how implemented by the former builders, which still today are perpetuated and transmitted to future generations of carpenters, roofers, stonemasons, not to mention all the other trades. We hope that it will bring about vocations among younger people, as well as sharing the experience with all those who work in construction.
