After the launch party for the brand Inspire Metz on the 18th October 2016, Metz Métropole Déveloçppement is keen to keep the momentum going with local partners by affirming the mark in the urban landscape.
In November 2016, the urban sculpture of the brand was exposed in front of Metz railway station, “the most beautiful station in France”.
 

Inspire Metz in front of the Centre Pompidou-Metz

Today, the sculpture is moving and will be installed on the Parvis des Droits de l'Homme, in front of the Centre Pompidou-Metz.  Residents, tourists and visitors can take photos with the sculpture which creates a frame, a view-point over the art centre, a quadrilateral postcard representing QuattroPole.

The sculpture Inspire Metz will stay in place on the Parvis des Droits de l'Homme, until it is moved to the Parvis in front of the congress centre “Metz Congrès Robert Schuman” for its inauguration in September 2018.




Corian and private partners

The sculpture is made of Corian by Créa Diffusion based in Solgne, a real example of local expertise!  A composite material popular with the big names of design and architecture, the choice of Corian is not insignificant: it perfectly represents the
Arts&Tech aspect of the brand.  4 local partners were associated with the creation of the sculpture: the Caisse d'Épargne Lorraine Champagne-Ardenne, the Crédit Agricole de Lorraine, KPMG and Vinci Construction France.  Thanks to their financial aid and help from Créa Diffusion, the urban sculpture was funded completely by donors and carried no cost to local authorities.
