I didn't realize that Tour D2 is going to have a green roof. That's a great feature and should go well with the building.

ZAC des Studios et des Congrès - Val d'Europe

Jake Sullu talks about a big urban planning on progress near to Disneyland Paris (most visited amusement park in Europe).

Après le quartier de la gare, le quartier du parc, et le quartier du lac, c'est le chantier d'un 4ème quartier, celui de la "ZAC des Studios et des Congrès" qui vient juste de démarrer sur le Val d'Europe.
Pour localiser un peu son emplacement, ce nouveau quartier se trouvera sur la commune de Chessy, entre les Avenues Hergé, le boulevard Circulaire, et les backstages des Walt Disney Studios. Un nouvel hôtel Disney, dans un style Art Déco (le style architectural de ce nouveau quartier), devrait permettre de faire "barrage" entre le quartier et les Walt Disney Studios.



Voici les premières photos du chantier de cette nouvelle ZAC





En attendant vous pouvez déjà jeter un œil sur les concepts art du premier programme immobilier, "Le Charleston" , qui prendra place face au Relais Spa Val d'Europe (ils en faisaient d'ailleurs la pub dans le Direct Matin de hier) => je sens que les détracteurs du style "Néo" vont encore se régaler

^ I like the setbacks and the green roofs on this one, but why not give it a proper limestone facade? It'd look so much more Parisienne, timeless, classy and valuable.
These huge glass facades are neither pleasant, nor sustainable and economically viable.

NYC is getting this right sometimes, for instance - see examples.

Because Paris has far enough limestone. You classicists might not like it, but a lot of us support modern buildings like this. Gives a break from the stuffy "national style" buildings...

Took the T2 today past the Seguin island and there seemed to be ground work in progress, anyone know if they're actually starting construction work? The website seems to be focused these days more on the other projects in progress in the area. In other news, Shigeru Ban (the architect of the project) has recently received the Pritzker prize. I had already seen the news about the latest Pritzker prize but I didn't realize it's the same person.

Indeed. Having a roof is fine, but you know, it has a purpose apart from looks...

Looks like a roof but I don't think it was ever supposed to be anything other than a very fancy decorative object with no particular purpose, of which there are a few other around Paris and from which the French take so much pride.

In its previous form, the open space of Les Halles was not covered either.

Finally, knowing the place, the argument about not creating a socially sensible hotspot makes a lot of sense, even if I would have never thought of that. The thing is that the underground station bellow is the heart of the RER system which services the suburbs and the place is therefore the "fountain" that spills up the content of the suburbs into central Paris; some of it is not that great as you well know and those who used to congregate at the exits were keeping the area quite dodgy. The new structure moves from being the series of "buildings" of before into being a very open space with the purpose, I suspect, of inviting people to spread immediately in the surroundings instead of congregating.
I was recently reading an article about the Gare du Nord (which services the "sensible" suburbs of the North-East) and its layered halls capable of hosting a lot of people inside - the more I think, I don't believe anymore it's a coincidence that the place has a tendency to foster conflict.
