Paris in Progress:discover major construction sites

Construction projects often follow two distinct timeframes: the first is a set calendar that outlines dates for completion of the different stages; the second, more relative, is that of the completed project coming to life and creating links with the surrounding environment and community. This latter characteristic of new projects is what makes each initiative a fascinating symbol of a rapidly changing city.

Every year Paris holds more than one hundred competitions to designate the best new or renovated housing, offices, public spaces and works of art.This tour highlights the challenges and specificities of different urban planning initiatives in Paris, including constraints involving the architect’s design concept, noise levels, choice of building materials, engineering and/or cost.

Sites to be visited: (construction site timeframes permitting)

  • Châtelet-Les Halles (1st arr.) (David Mangin and Patrick Berger)

  • La Philharmonie (19th arr.) (Jean Nouvel)

  • Clichy-Batignolles neighborhood and its transformation (17th arr.)



Tours may be guided by an architect from the agency responsible for the project (schedule permitting).
