A social housing tower in Paris’ 13th arrondissement has been converted into a temporary street art temple by 100 artists, creating the largest graffiti exhibition in the world.

As part of the Tour 13 project, the exterior of the nine-storey building and the 36 apartments within have been transformed by artists Vhils and C215, among other high profile names, and is accessible to the public until the end of October, before the tower’s demolition in November. 

Entry to Tour 13 (5 rue Fulton) is free between midday and 8pm every day except Monday.
