Detail, street light, bird-like weathervanes on poles, short granite walls and walking path; native grasses at left; The cultural section of the project (Station des Quais), gathers four contemporary gardens inspired by the mood of the river; the Quai des brumes, the Quai des flots, the Quai des hommes and the Quai des vents. At Quai des vents (Wind Dock), tall poles, or "stems," with large white weathervanes attached emerge from the garden, recalling the flight of geese in the wind.
