15.05.2016Morland project on display in Athens

The 23 winning proposals for the regeneration initiative ‘Réinventer Paris’ are now on display in Athens. Among the proposals for various sites across Paris is the scheme for the redevelopment of the Boulevard Morland designed by David Chipperfield Architects Berlin together with Paris-based developer Emerige.

The proposal extends and opens up the existing 1960s structure and integrates an artistic installation designed by Studio Other Spaces (an experimental practice run by Olafur Eliasson and Sebastian Behmann in Berlin).

The exhibition is presented by the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum for Architecture and Design in collaboration with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. Throughout 2016 and 2017 ‘Réinventer Paris’ will continue as a travelling exhibition in Chicago and other U.S. cities.
