In 2015, Syctom started thinking about rebuilding its household waste treatment plant located in Romainville-Bobigny. Syctom requested the addition of an artistic dimension to the project through the creation of a symbolic art piece, as well as by including artists in the communication strategy. The selected artist(s) would need to take into account both the nature of the facility (waste treatment plant) and the scope of the project. A key innovative feature worth highlighting is the construction of an inland port.
