On June 4, 2009, Nicolas Géant set up a hive on the roof of the Grand Palais in Paris. "I have about 150 hives to the west of Paris, one at Vuitton's at the Pont Neuf bridge and today two on the roof of the Grand Palais. My objective in setting up these hives right in the heart of Paris is to point my finger at this paradox: the bee in the city does very well while those of the fields - not the county - do very badly. That shows that there are presently problems. So I looked for a mythical spot in Paris, I wanted it to be near the Champs-Elysées, which everyone knows, from New York to Tokyo."
