Between zinc and sky is an unexplored dimension of the French capital. The roofs conceal one of the most typical faces of Paris, a chaotic horizon sculpted by architectural trends over the centuries.

Some people break the law by roaming the city heights, while others enjoy the magnificent views, relax in hidden gardens, or bathe in private swimming pools.

These encounters lead to a reflection on life in an urban environment. The rooftops could answer the lack of space, fresh air, horizon, and conviviality with a few changes.
