In the presence of Junya Ishigami
With the participation of Karol Beffa (composer, pianist), Emmanuel Bocrie (director of the Media Unit, Météo France), David Chavalarias (Director of Research at CNRS

and Director of Institut des Systèmes Complexes, Paris), Valentin Devos (industrial designer), Luce Lebart (photography historian, essayist and curator), Michel de Pracontal (science writer and journalist), Alban Schmutz (SVP Strategic Development & Public Affairs for OVH and Chairman of CISPE - Cloud Infrastructure Services Providers in Europe), Ryoko Sekiguchi (writer, translator) and Sugio Yamaguchi (Botanique restaurant)

In 2014, Junya Ishigami imagined the House of Peace for the city of Copenhagen, an immense building in the shape of a cloud resting on the water, designed as a symbol of peace. The cloud—this floating, suspended mass, formed from small drops of water of variable forms—is a recurring motif in the architect’s work. It is the starting point for this Night of Uncertainty that brings together artists, scientists, and philosophers in a discussion led by Cédric Villani.
