The Grand Paris is an impressive piece of infrastructure. In contrast it makes Crossrail look a bit half-assed.

I didn't know what the Bergère eco-quartier was but I googled it and I think you're right. Outer Paris has a very rich heritage of late 19th and especially 20th century vernacular architecture, especially brick but not only, and it is a shame that it is not used for reinterpretation and continuation. Those historical pastiche buildings that are proposed really tacky indeed, in the urban context of Puteaux. I'm not sure either what the architect was thinking of, the monumental buildings look half-parisian, half central-european from the Jura area (especially because of the roofs).

I think none of you is right. There is not such things as 'urban context' there.. (especially near la defense..). There are nice blocks here or there with nice old buildings indded, but the place they plan to build this seems is very worth to replace by this project. And if it brings architectural diversity in the neighbourghood, we sure need to dig deep to find how to complain about the project. Even if it is very obvious to state this will seem tacky compared if they built this a century ago with real limestone

^ I live near La Defense and I can safely say you're not right, there's actually a lot of context, a lot more than in places with uniform planning and buildings (be it hausmannian or blocks of flats). The diversity (up to randomness) of architectural types is excellent.

Not sure what is wrong with the criticising of the project based on how the buildings look in themselves, regardless of anything else - that's the kind of criticism I have. I think they're a bit ugly in the pastiche way. I didn't say that the context should normally force these buildings in a certain stylistic direction, what I said was that it would have been nice if the complex took inspiration rather in the rich architectural context of the Hauts-de-Seine.

I could not agree more. Clever, well thought and documented, tradition-inspired contemporary architecture is good. Fake neo-old perpetuating easy clichés without any regard toward the actual local context, history and particularities of the place is terrible.

i don't know the place so I'm not a good judge. What I can say is that, when i saw the renders, I thought it was a mash-up of some Disneyland theme park and the Pokemon X/Y vision of Paris (Lumiose city).

However, I'm far from sure that it will actually be terrible, if they do it right, it might not be that bad.

DCA wins Morland Paris, on the "Réinventer Paris" bid












©David Chipperfield Architects

Quote:
Following a three-phase competitive process, David Chipperfield Architects Berlin, together with Paris-based developer Emerige, has won the Call for Projects to redevelop the ‘Boulevard Morland’ site in the 4th arrondissement of Paris. The process is part of the wider city-led urban regeneration initiative - ‘Reinventer Paris’ - calling for innovative projects to redevelop 23 sites across the city.

The winning scheme for the Boulevard Morland site both extends and opens up the existing structure which was originally built from 1957 to 1964 as a city administration building. The two top floors will integrate an inhabitable artistic installation designed by Studio Other Spaces that will house a bar and restaurant.

The redeveloped complex will contain a mixed-use programme including housing, a youth hostel, hotel facilities, offices, retail outlets and a food market, establishing a new social and public landmark for the people of Paris.
