Also, what is "top 5 worldwide", and according to whom ?
I saw this in an english-french news online;

Here is the official article

This will be in a University called Paris-Saclay University. So a University of Universities, just a regroupment.

Interactive map of GRAND PARIS railways (RER/Metro)

http://serveurlc.com/iledefrance/

This is an interactive map showing everything (tracks/trains) being constructed until 2030. Huge network spanning all of Île-de-France. Urban Sprawl will be huge!

Don't know what kind of weed the designers use, but it makes them think that the Amazonian forest, the Beauce's wheat fields and the Dutch fields of poppies will grow on the top of the buildings in the core of Paris agglo......

Fix your wig, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Paris is coming.

I think it'd be a perfect addition to the TGI.

This will be in a University called Paris-Saclay University. So a University of Universities, just a regroupment.
Well, to be precise, l'université Paris-Saclay is a COMU (COMmunauté d'Université), which means "Gathering of universities". It was decided to move most schools, colleges and universities of this COMU to a single giant campus, named "Campus Paris-Saclay", where several schools, research centers and an university are already located.
The École Centrale is a major historic engineering school which is currently merging with another major engineering school called Supelec. Supelec was already located in Saclay, so they are extending Supelec's campus to accomodate the people and labs comming from Centrale, giving birth to a new school called CentraleSupelec (Legally, the two school merged this year, but still have separate campuses and curricula until the new buildings are completed).
CentraleSupelec will stay an independant school that is part of the Université Paris-Saclay, with its own sub-campus inside the campus.

Also, new Orly Airport renovations incase any of you didn't know. Should be done in 2018 with a new terminal as well.

Do these renovations include Orly Sud (the turquoise building to the left)?

Last time I went there it was in dire need of renovation, both interior and exterior. The place had chandeliers, bright 60s colors and still used CRT's.

So it will be a single terminal airport? Not bad at all.

The only problem I have with Orly is that it's right in the middle of the urban area of the city.

I hope, I haven't been to Orly in a couple of months, and yeah, Orly really needs renovations. I feel bad for some tourists who land here. But this project is apparently susposed to be finished by 2018, and yes that building. Just google Orly Renovation and articles should pop up.

It was built so long ago, when it was built, this area wasn't Urban.

Now you make me want to go and see that, ha.

I used Orly a few years ago but I can't remember the terminal, it looked very good.

Not giving me very functional airports as examples. Most modern ones are built outside cities, not within them.

I know it's old, just adding that future expansion will be painful.

Speaking about replacing outdated post-war housing with good, new stuff, I was just talking about this with our advisor at Franco-Suisse, the housing company. They explained how complicated is to get such projects done, because you have to first convince, say, 20 owners to agree and then you also need to find solutions for them - for example, where do you give them home between leaving the old building and inaugurating the new one (or, find new homes from the start for those won't end up living in the new building you'll be doing). However, interestingly, the process is much straightforward in the case of social housing, where you only have to deal with one owner: the municipality. If a deal is struck, the municipality will relocate the inhabitants from that building to another of their own. Here bellow is one such boarded social housing building from Suresnes centre-ville, that is getting replaced by a Franco-Suisse house:

In this other angle you can see the part that has already been built by FS, on the adjacent lot:

As for Franco-Suisse, I think they have nailed, in their best buildings, what is (or what should be) the contemporary Parisian vernacular, like in this example:



Beautiful beige stone for cladding, tall & souple windows with ironwork, mansarde. We're buying a flat in this one, btw.

Also on blocks of flats (post-war ones), my favourite of all from inner Paris has just been renovated:

It lies on a side of the Montsouris park. It used to be beige but now it's white. Here are some older pics of it:
