The threaded cobalt blue tunnels of "Les Voûtes Filantes" by Paris-based Atelier YokYok are now on full display for the 2015 Cahors June Festival, an emerging garden festival taking place throughout the month of June in Cahors, France.
Designed in collaboration with metal sculptor Ulysse Lacoste and Laure Micarré. Atelier YokYok's installation — whose title roughly translates to "shooting vaults" — had one of three winning entries that were realized for the event.
The designers shared some recent photos of their installation at the cloister at St. Stephen's Cathedral.

"Set aside of its stone-build big sister, an enchanting garden deploys, extends and tends under the stroller’s curious eyes. The sacred architecture that faces it is convoked in its entire syncretic dimension."
"Arcs of all origins are linked to one another by a colorful woven structure that performs with light and mystery; hence revealing a light dematerialized architecture, that the stroller admires its variations while wandering in the vaults."
"By these suspended Ariadne’s threads, the stroller is guided towards the center of the lot, a secret cloister. The glance rests then rises."
