Located between Paris and Roissy, the new urban Europacity center, will offer a mixture of retail, culture and leisure.
From BIG architects:
“Europacity will be an experimental hybrid between urbanism and landscape design: center and periphery overlapped in the simultaneous coexistence of a recreational open landscape of rolling hills superimposed on an urban neighborhood of walkable streets, plazas and parks.
We find that Paris these years is taking on a holistic effort to ensure that the urban periphery is given equal opportunity to be as lively and inhabitable as its historic center.
Europacity will be an important step in this agenda.”
