As part of the work on the new library at the Ecole du Louvre, designed by architect Heleen Hart (HBAAT agency - Grand Prix du Jury d\'Architecture 2021), two sculptures by Antony Gormley were donated to the school and installed: Witness VIII and Witness VII.

B+G carried out a study and technical monitoring of the installation of the artworks. We were commissioned to carry out various structural checks and calculations, including the most impressive, the suspension of the Witness VIII artwork weighing around 500kg in Corten steel, hung upside down from a stone vault.
