Revisiting the Petite Ceinture of Paris
The Petite Ceinture is a former railway line, which once encircled Paris inside the boulevards des Maréchaux. Disused since 1934, its tracks are recently since 2007 reopened to public. A variety of projects with various programs using both the tracks and the former stations are now or will be implemented. These spaces, which were abandoned for more than 70 years, offer a unique opportunity in Paris to experiment new urbanities. Two sites have been selected in the northern part of Paris. According to the specificities of each site, design will have to propose new scenario with mixed-used programs including co-working, fab-labs, temporary housing for immigrants, cultural, social, leisure activities including gardens and public spaces.
