The City of Paris is launching a call for innovative urban projects and offering 23 sites to all professionals where they can develop their ideas and express their talents
"Paris has to reinvent itself every moment".
Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris
A city like Paris must be able to reinvent itself at every moment in order to meet the many challenges facing it. Particularly in terms of housing and everything relating to density, desegregation, energy and resilience. It is important in today's world to find new collective ways of working that will give shape to the future metropolis.
We are launching this call for innovative urban projects in order to prefigure what the Paris of tomorrow might be. Each team is invited to present its ideas on how to bring added vitality to exceptional Parisian sites. The winners will then be able to purchase or rent the terrains in order to carry out their projects while simultaneously conducting an urban experiment on an unparalleled scale.
I hope that each team deploys its creativity freely in order to imagine the projects they would like to see realized in the coming years. The teams will consist of original and unconventional groups in which all disciplines can be represented, reinventing our ways of living, working, exchanging and sharing in Paris.
Surprise us by offering Parisians a new vision of their city, revealing new quarters with a wealth of possibilities!
