Impressive design group wins competition for University research centre in Paris

BIG + Paris-based architects OFF, engineers Buro Happold, consultants Michel Forgue and environmental engineer Franck Boutte is the winning team to design the new 15,000 sq m research centre for Sorbonne’s Scientific university Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris.

The new multidisciplinary research centre, Paris PARC, located between Jean Nouvel’s Institut du Monde Arabe and the open green park of the Jussieu Campus will become a significant addition to the campus, strengthening the international appeal and openness of the leading French University for Science and Medicine.

The facility will bring together academic scholars and the busi¬ness community, while re-connecting the university physically and visually with the city of Paris. The winning team was honored as the best design among proposals from MVRDV, Lipsky Rollet, Mario Cucinella and Peripherique.

Paris PARC is located in the visual axis of the Notre Dame Cathedral in a dense context of university buildings from different historical periods. BIG proposes a building geometry that adapts to the specific conditions of all adjoining sides, optimised for daylight, views and accessibility.

The three-dimensional envelope retracts from the neighboring facades, opens up towards the square of Institut du Monde Arabe and the park, and folds into a publicly accessible rooftop landscape, resulting in an adapted sculptural building volume situated between the emblematic architectural monuments of the university.

Bjarke Ingels, Founder at BIG details: “As a form of urban experiment the Paris PARC is the imprint of the pressures of its urban context. Wedged into a super dense context - in terms of space, public flows and architectural history - the PARC is conceived as a chain of reactions to the various external and internal forces acting upon it.

“Inflated to allow daylight and air to enter into the heart of the facility, compressed to ensure daylight and views for the neighboring classrooms and dormitories, lifted and decompressed to allow the public to enter from both plaza and park and finally tilted to reflect the spectacular view of the Paris skyline and the Notre Dame to the Parisians.”

A central canyon provides daylight and a visual connection between laboratories and offices. In the atrium a cascade of informal meeting spaces lead to the public rooftop terrace and faculty club. A public stair to the rooftop offers glimpses into the activities of the laboratories which are divided by transparent walls throughout the building to ensure visual connections between the working spaces. The upper levels have panoramic views towards the Notre Dame and the skyline of Paris.

The Louvre as it is currently is open on its environment. And the Tuileries garden is its natural continuation. Just go there on sunny days and you'll notice that not only tourists are hanging around, Parisians love the place as it is.

If closed, then the court of the Louvre would necessarily be fully isolated from the public space. I hardly see how could it be different.

I 100% agree...let's wait for a front view of the building though to give our final verdict.

What is so bad about cubic style? it's simple, nice and it fits almost everywhere.

1960s

Built in the early sixties along the ring road of Paris, this high rise block of 16 storeys includes 96 apartments. The demolition, firstly envisaged, has been avoided and a project of transformation decided. The project propose a generous extension of the apartments.

New floors, built as a self-supporting structure, are added on the periphery of the existing building at every floor, to extend the living rooms, create closeable terrasses and balconies. The existing facades with small windows have been removed and replaced by large transparent openings, so that the inhabitants profit of the exceptionnal view on Paris all around.

The volumes have been released of all useless rooms and installations to become a free and transparent space from the entrance to a new garden created on the back of the building. Rooms for collective activities have been etablished on the sides of the hall. Two lifts have been built to improve the access to the apartments.

The structure has been designed with prefabricated elements so that the inhabitants can stay in the apartments during the construction works.

To have only that is monotone

We need triangle, rounded shapes to make a diversified skyline!

Look at dubai, Hong Kong and other best world skylines.

Look London: you have gherkin, shard & pinnacle which are not blocky!

French architects ECDM release two designs for assimilation into Grand Paris waterfront


Building bold in such an illustrious cityscape as Paris, without causing detriment to the surrounding vision, is no doubt a daunting task, but one that French architecture firm ECDM have relentlessly beheld. Envisioning the design of two separate structures secured firmly along the banks of the river Seine, they seek to further follow a mantra of producing work which reflects the evolution and mutation of society at large. Whilst this criterion can remain open to debate, what’s starkly apparent from their commercial project ‘Ensemble de bureaux Zac Seguin - Boulogne-Billancourt’ is an attempt at effective assimilation - either to the notorious scenery surrounding it, or the yet untouched natural habitats interspersing their towering testaments to ‘du Grand Paris.’

The first, known simply as ‘periscopes’ is an unequivocally determined attempt to construct according to external landscape; or as ECDM states: “If there is a special relationship to the river, to the matrix, the privileged views are deployed over 360°. Rise of a few tens of meters and a unique relationship is established between the building and Greater Paris.” Built to a looming height to ensure a 360° panoramic spectacle, jutting extensions provide the clientele the opportunity to bask in views extending beneath them, generating large vistas between the docks and park. This intrinsic blend of horizontal with vertical has the additional intention of seeking to acquire two types of commercial building.

A compact base, designed to anchor the project in an affiliation with the surrounding urban area, acts as an effective means of gradually acclimatising entering visitors as they adjust to the enclosed conditions. The bottom two floors, having been combined to create a vast open space - a wide plateau of approximately 5,000 sq m - is a prime example of this attempted transition. Extending from the base flourishes cultivated outdoor spaces to further ease their clash of scenery. Advancing an essence of greenery are the various extended balconies and terraces intended for conversion into hanging gardens.

‘Origami’, meanwhile, is predominantly a visual blend of the outside seamlessly integrated into the confines of the building. Consisting of extensive glasswork, the evoked impression is of a supersized greenhouse; as the extremities extend further upwards, the impression of becoming absorbed into the everywhere increases, as the construction becomes lighter, more transparent, with a sense of porosity emerging. Closest to the 89m pinnacle of this trend-defying design can be discovered a large roof garden, vertically deployed to maximise exposure to those looking in. It is a project that intends to make a clear and visual impact on both its immediate and extended locale; to question standard aesthetic expectations: “Without denying the obvious qualities and ability to meet expectations specific to the program, our project reinterprets them in complex architectural oxymorons. It's about being compact and light, dense, slender, streamlined and composite.”

Waterfront Paris? With those cubic jokes?

It's time to wake in paris when we talk about a waterfront panorama.

I expect more for a city like paris with true proposal and not that those glass pranks
