An ancient industrial building being converted into the Parisian headquarters of the Thierry Mugler luxury brand. I accompany the project's architect on a visit to the construction site and notice a large puddle on the ground. The puddle reflects the metallic structure of the building's roof in different planes. At times the edges of the puddle remind us of what is real, and what is only a reflection.
