A half-emerged, opaque mass, Bizarre Cherbourg...!!? borrows its form from submarines and icebergs. A paroxysm of the minimal monolith, a dark screen on the city, its unfathomable nature sparks desire. Bizarre Cherbourg...!!? is a floating arts centre, a faux building designed as an extension of public space ; it is a monstrous hybrid waiting to be tamed.
