"La ville molle" (the soft city) is the creation of Atelier Raum Architects, which turned part of the cobbled streets of medieval Bourges, France, into a mini earthquake zone last year for the city's Biennale of Contemporary Art. The installation's aim is to shake up the pedestrian's urban experience, question the durability of a city and its capacity to change.
