The house is located in the 13th district of Paris on the river Seine. Already his appearance attracts attention, because it is decorated with a huge orange graffiti. In General, this is a giant canvas is 27 meters.

For 7 months, more than 100 graffiti artists from 16 different countries participated in the creation of this biggest exhibition of graffiti in the world. 9 floors, 36 apartments with 4-5 rooms – became the place of fantasy modern painters.

The tower explodes color on each floor and each room is different from the other. This is an incredible diversity of contemporary works collected in one place.

In early November’re going to tear down the building and all works of art will disappear. But from the very beginning, TV channel France Ô immortalized the creative process of their creation by a documentary, which will come out in 2014, after the tower will be destroyed.
