Following six years of design and construction, the mixed-use complex Morland Mixité Capitale in the centre of Paris has been completed. The building on the banks of the River Seine was originally constructed in the 1960s and has been refurbished, remodelled and extended. The official opening will take place on 22 June 2022.

The former ‘Préfecture de Paris’ on Boulevard Morland served the city as an administrative building for decades. In 2016, a team led by David Chipperfield Architects Berlin and the French developer Emerige won the Call for Projects ‘Reinventer Paris’ for the building – with their concept of making the previously introverted complex accessible to the public again, transforming it into a lively and open destination with the character of a campus which would have a positive effect on the wider neighbourhood.
