The bouquet factory explodes at La Rotondes Stalingrads La Rotonde, 6-8 place de la Bataille de Stalingrad, Paris (19th arr.)
Flowers for every occasion and every table… They celebrate our joys and our losses. But nature cannot absorb so many desires. So could it be that our desires and disregard for biodiversity might overheat bouquet factories to the point where they finally explode in an ultimate and pornographic atomic-scale mushroom cloud of bouquets? A fragrant orgasm to be expected inside the revolutionary architecture of Claude-Nicolas Ledoux!
