Tête Carrée, Discover an urban icon!
Only 300 meters from the Hotel du Pin, at the crossroads of rue Barla & of avenue St Jean Baptiste, the first inhabited sculpture in the world stands 30 meters high.
The giant of 1,050 tons inaugurated on June 29, 2002, houses the administrative offices of the Louis Nucéra library. As for its name, you are free to say "square head" or "square head". A perfect hybrid between architecture and sculpture, the head created by French architects Yves Bayard & Francis Chapuis is inspired by the work of the Nice sculptor Sacha Sosno. A building of character whose aesthetics divide the crowds.
