    Description

    Caught up in the pure static cristal white gates, the four barge elevators fluctuate from turquoise to blue when they are in movement – colour of aquariums.

    Lighting of four barge elevators on the Canal du Centre, that link the pools of Sambre and Escaut, listed as UNESCO World Heritage.
    Light makes the preciousity of the metallic structures.
    At night, when lit, these elevators invite visitors to a new type of attendance of the tow paths.
