The Multi-layer City, Reinventing Paris (17ᵉ)
Paris’ Périphérique ring-road is spanned by a garden bridge, a living structure with a landscaped surface accessible to all, opening on all sides to public streets. Above the bridge, a free arrangement of housing and offices. Their structural autonomy creates a capacity to evolve, alongside the re-invention of the city. The buildings are linked at roof level to create an urban farm dedicated to growing the first Parisian tea plantation. Mixed-use blocks mean residents and office users can both enjoy this extraordinary garden. With the planted balconies and garden bridge, the fully three-dimensional landscaping scheme becomes an environmental powerhouse, contributing to the pleasure of experiencing city life differently. Porte des Ternes plays host to a development that is both unique and of its place, reconnecting with Paris.
