One of his best works that confused onlookers was the 3D Glass globe Illusion at the Paris City Hall. François created this 3D glass globe with the help of ninety workers and finished it in only 5 days.

He called the grass globe ‘Qui croire?’ which means ‘Who to believe?’ The 3D glass globe is 100 meters in length. If viewed at a certain angle it looks like a large sphere. The sphere covers 16,000 sq. ft. is supposed to "question the link between nature and city, and their difficult coexistence."

The artist explains that by visiting the work the audience can see that "different creations will emerge without being able to see the trick. Because there is no trick: an anamorphosis is the result of very precise calculations. And also a bit of imagination."
