Grand Paris

Through the redesign of large public squares and the banks of the Seine Paris is regaining its public space. But we do not focus on the stone-built core of the romantic city of our longings, which threatens to degenerate into a airbnb village, but at Grand Paris beyond the Boulevard périphérique. Current plans for the edge of the city are worth examining and with the Grand Paris Express, an infrastructure project of an incomparable scale, what is probably the capital’s last monument is being created. Young architecture projects and intermediate uses show how new ideas can gain a foothold in the big city.
