Jean-Luc Godard Opéra­tion Béton’. Doc­u­men­taire sur la con­struc­tion de la Grande Dixence

Over 10 years of drilling sup­ple­men­tary water tun­nels towards oth­er val­leys near­by, the Grand Dix­ence dam was nec­es­sary to fill more effi­cient­ly the arti­fi­cial lake. After those works, the for­mer con­tain­er vil­lage on the same site under­neath the grand bar­ri­er was reor­gan­ised to cre­ate a tem­po­rary exhi­bi­tion pavil­ion explain­ing the pharaon­ic con­struc­tion of the 50’s with the pro­jec­tion of Opéra­tion Béton’ of Jean Luc Godard and the recent upgrad­ing of the 90’s, the gigan­tic tun­nel infra­struc­ture. The con­tain­ers of the type barone pre­fab­bri­cati’ were cov­ered by an autonomous steel struc­ture to sup­port the heavy snow amounts that can occur at this altitude.
