Renovated in 2020 by the Hauts-de-Seine Department, it is within the framework of the European Heritage Days that the fascinating Tour aux figures, monumental sculpture by Jean Dubuffet, opens its doors for a guided tour that will transport the participants in the universe imagined by the artist.
External traces that evoke bodies and faces passing through the interior which is an amazing ascending labyrinth: this colossal work leaves no one indifferent.
After or before the visit, a photographic exhibition, educational panels, a video space and a playful space are present in the reception area to discover or deepen his knowledge about the Tower with figures and Jean Dubuffet.
Attention: the climb of the tower is done by irregular steps and can be difficult for some audiences (from 6 years).

Jean Dubuffet’s 24-metre “Tower of Figures” was declared a historic monument on September 10, 2008\. It belongs to the series of «buildings» designed from 1967 within the cycle of «l'Hourloupe», utopian world concretized by the proliferation of sinuous lines. The “Tower of Figures” was restored in 2020\. A presentation area of the tower is accessible to all and open on Saturday and Sunday from 13:30 to 18:00 from 1 March to 31 October.
