Dominique Perrault: Citylights - le campus du pont de sèvres

Internationally-recognized french architect Dominique Perrault has redrawn plans for the Pont de Sèvres towers in Boulogne-Billancourt, france with 'citylights', a scheme to transform and re-urbanize the western suburb of Paris. stripping the old façades of the pre-existing towers, the design features a double layer skin that alternates between transparency and silver shades, providing a rhythmic effect to the highly geometric structures.




Situated close to the Seine, the buildings are a composition of three towers which each serve asthe main bodies or 'petals' in the layout.
Hexagonal volumes terminate at different heights, creating a visual effect similar to an organ flues assembly.
Working with the original proportions and identity of
the architecture, the new facade design features a 'bracelet' treatment which work with oblique creases and folds.
The finish multiplies the reflections on all perspectives, providing vibrant and light-filled bands
all around the buildings.



In order to provide more connection at the natural ground level, the elevated entrance of the towers is brought back to the same level of the city.
The lobby links up the buildings on three levels, offering a generous space for meetings and exchanges.
Within nearly 70,000 m2 of office floors, additional programs such as restaurants, cafeterias, a fitness club, a travellers' lobby, intercompany nursery and more are offered throughout.

I was confirmed yesterday that the ugly light blue panels were well & truly covered in plastic films. The EPADESA principal private secretary & communications director Dominique Boré , said to me that the final color will actually be 'Bleu Outremer', which corresponds to this:

'Bleu outremer'


Therefore, the final color will be that visible in the darker panel below:



That's good news then .

I like Big's a lot, that of Snohetta as well, and Manuelle Gautrand's is worth it too.

My favority is BIG, more urban and more open and integrated on its surrounding, it includes pedestrian streets and plaza.
The second is Gautrand, interresting design but the integration is not so good.
Snohetta project seems too much like the usual suburban mall, maybe more beautiful but still very car dependant and not well integrated.
About Valode and Pistre, honestly I don't see how it will look like.
