Autumn 2012

In 2008 the President of France commissioned ten international multidisciplinary teams to envision the evolution of the French capital as a “post-Kyoto” metropolis. The studio will focus on a specific intervention: the existing Périphérique, a 35km long ring ‘highway’ around Paris and the new superpériphérique. As a key component of the metropolis, the studio will speculate on their future. A trip to Paris (two-week intensive workshop) is a core component of the studio, in collaboration with AiGP and MVRDV+ACS+AAF.
