Project: Nativity of the Giraffe
Architect: Hondelatte Laporte Architectes
Location: Boulogne-Billancourt, France
Function: The architects sculpted a giant yellow giraffe around a 450-square-meter nursery to create this unusual structure. The whimsical design takes that beloved childhood concept of wild animals inhabiting an urban environment and runs with it, revitalizing the public space.
