Through a selection of original drawings, pieces and photographs, The Memorial, an Architectural Project bring to light the intense relationship between Yves Klein and Claude Parent. Their encounter was made possible by Yves Klein’s “Air Architecture” project, which launched a relation full of creativity as the artist conceptualizes, and the architect draws and paint.

Documenting the fruitful collaboration of Yves Klein and Claude Parent through their multiple projects with Pneumatic Rocket, Air Architecture, or even the Warswaw Fountains. The book also traces back the Memorial project conceived by Claude Parent for Yves Klein, shortly after his death, on request of his mother Marie Raymond and her spouse, the artist Rotraut.

Until October 27th 2013, the two artists and their collaboration are celebrated at the Espace de l’Art Concret at château of Mouans-Sartoux, in the Alpes-Maritimes near Saint-Paul de Vence, where was imagined a memorial dedicated to the artist.
