Reinvent Paris

In the project Ternes-Villiers, SLA's winning project in the international mega competition Reinventer Paris, a 5,500 m2 urban roof deck is put across the Boulevard Peripherique – the big ring road that circles the whole of Paris. Combining city nature-based ecosystem services, fully climate-adapted urban spaces and new social meeting places with underground parking, pedestrian-friendly connections and large roof terraces, which among other things will house a tea plantation, SLA works with city nature and urban life as complete ecosystems and creates brand new urban experiences and green contexts in an otherwise grey and traffic-congested part of Paris.
