The project "Rights on Carpet" is a carpet of about 150 square meters representing four important humanitarian treaties: the Geneva Conventions, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and the Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. These texts are written on the carpet and illustrated by drawings and iconography. The carpet thus begins to stimulate and trigger discussions and debates on the theme of humanity. It becomes an architectural means of promoting exchange between people.
