Bridal Veil Water Curtain in France

Every year the Horizons Sancy festival brings about beautiful installations that “ooohh” and “ahhhh” the crowd, and this year’s Bridal Veil is one of our personal favorites.

French architect Louis Sicard teamed up with fellow architect Emily Usta and carpenter Thorsten Fischer to create the stunning installation. The veil of water pours from 4,000 holes poked through 11-foot high zig-zagging aqueducts, and stretches 131-feet. Constructed from both pine and copia timber, the channel runs through the Mont-Dore region of Sancy, France. The fine screen of water was created for visitors to pass through, and to come out on the other end with a feeling of refreshment, along with being in touch with nature of course. The name “Bridal Veil” was inspired from…yup, you guessed it – bridal gowns.
