In Tansition - A Local Metropolis

13.12.2013

The simultaneousness of small and big, local and metropolitan scale creates a unique vision of as a contemporary city at the EUROPAN 12 site in Paris, Porte des Poissonniers

The condition of the site is characterized by highly heterogeneous areas which has led to a project which can adapt in time and scale to different conditions.
   New developments shall be implemented process-related, reaching from short term, informal interventions to a long term urbanism based on a combination of small and big scale buildings. Small scale buildings establish a vivid permeable ground floor, 100% public and equipped with multiple functions and urban spaces adapted to human scale. This ground floor can integrate existing structures and sets up a common ground for high-rise buildings, being visible from afar and offering great perspectives on the Parisian cityscape. The simultaneousness of small and big, local and metropolitan scale shall create a unique vision of a contemporary city.
