Europa City, Triangle de Gonesse.

This strong link in the Grand Paris project was to bring together five universes around the creative diversity of the European continent… This project anticipated new consumption practices
and cultural recreation. Rather than answer “infrastructure” or even “building”, we proposed a spatial device. The soil is the structuring element of the project. It covers and contains, binds, deforms and becomes a meeting place. In reality, it stages the different scales of the project. It is therefore a planning tool. An open scenario. A space of transition between urban, peri-urban and agricultural situations. A bridge connecting two pieces of territory cut by infrastructure.
