Hi Erbse, of course here are some recent renders of the "Canopée" project (U/C) for Les Halles:

Ah well, thank you!

But I'm not sure that's much of an improvement over the former PM Les Halles of the 80s.

Somewhat, the quarter had a lot of character and unique style.

Now it'll look like some Chinese urban showoff-wastespace.

Are you kidding? The former Halles were absolutely dreadful...they also were the delinquents' favourite place...but I'm afraid the new Halles will also be though.

It definitely wasn't all that bad, bro.

It could have done very well with a proper renovation and some more security / social use at nights keeping out the "delinquents".

In France, school buildings are funded by local authorities. And anyway, this school doesn't look fancy to me.

My bad.
I was pretty sure construction of écoles municipales were assured through crédits d'équipements of the ministry and that the communes were in charge of making them run.
I was wrong.

Kindergarten in Paris / Eva Samuel Architect Urbanist & Associates

Architects: Eva Samuel Architect Urbanist & Associates
Location: Ecolematernelle, Dalle des Olympiades, Paris, France
Design Team: S.Romain Architect, S. dirvariu, F. Laheurte assistants
Renovation Surface: 2,400 sqm
Completion: 2012
Construction: Eiffage
Photographs: Gaston Bergeret, Eva Samuel Architect Urbanist & Associates

In the Olympiades quarter, the reconstructed kindergarten stands out like a gleaming toy amidst the neighbouring towers and blocks. It is part of the re-evaluation of a dense, functional and mixed urban planning project built in the 1960s and 70s. In this very lively district, the City of Paris is implementing a project involving property consolidations and redescriptions of exterior spaces.

The school, dwarfed by the surrounding towers, will play its role in this context, by enhancing the image of a public amenity and countering the overwhelming presence of the surrounding buildings and the omnipresence of concrete. It’s a sophisticated toy: it was necessary to fill in a swimming pool, move a bowling alley, pierce floors and create openings, to enlarge the school downwards through the concrete slab and give it a street-level entrance. In short, an extension by excavation.

The building’s envelope is a response to several environmental aims: visual protection, increased natural light to counteract the surrounding solar screens, no thermal bridges, natural ventilation and double flux in winter. This school is the first to comply with the City of Paris’s climate plan. The result is a thick façade with varied reliefs – bay, alcove, and concave windows – which are used horizontally on the roof as skylights and to house air treatment machinery and ventilation chimneys.

These multiform strawberry coloured elements enliven and dematerialise the façades. Their anodized aluminium cladding changes from pink to golden grey to green depending on one’s movements, point de view, the colour of the sky and reflections of nearby buildings. The atmosphere inside the school is gentle and serene. The only colours are those of the materials themselves, such as the wood of the false ceilings and the bay windows.

The façade’s thickness creates a strong sense of protection and minimises outlook from neighbouring towers. The children enjoy taking over the micro-spaces generated by the façade’s thickness, using them as mini-living rooms, for reading, tea parties, hiding, etc.

Don't get offended Erbse but this must be the most hilarious post i've ever ever read on SSC......I'm still laughing weeks after having seen it the first time...

My god...les Halles...one of the most dreadful central areas...in terms of urbanism and livability it's on a par with Leeds(!)...a little under perhaps...

Funny how this "Paris thing" makes some foreigners delirious really...generally they're american...but they can be of any nationality apparently...

One last word: I fear it's not going any better with this canopy...
the place is cursed really...no way.

Les Halles of the 70's is a piece of shit (like the Centre Pompidou), the true and unique style of Les Halles it's this one :



And I think the Canopy ans its gardens will be a great rebirth for Les Halles.

70's, worst period ever for the good taste...
