Based on the lettering used for the signs in Les Bains des Docks, by one of the architect I like most.

The font is amazing...and given its use, brilliant too. :)
Comment by thalamic 1st september 2008
@Érico: thanks a lot!

@thalamic: thanks, I opted for a back-to-the-origin font with a single brick used to build the letterform. After experimenting with bricks stretched size, overlapping bricks, simulated bezier curves, it was quite relaxing! :)
Note that the font concept is not mine, but of the anonymous designer who collaborated with the Atelier Jean Nouvel for the Les Bains des Docks building.

@Monsieuralex: thanks for posting about this font!

@MarcoDiMarco: thanks, but the concept I think is 100% French! :)
