réinventer paris is an initiative that aims to develop innovative urban projects within the french capital. named ‘porte des ternes’, one of the 23 winning schemes has been designed by local practices jacques ferrier and chartier dalix architectes. the project proposes to transform part of paris’ boulevard périphérique — the ring road that encircles the city. the design involves the creation of a shared landscape, formed by an integrated network of gardens. an elevated bridge spans the ring road, forming an inhabited structure that contains markets, shops, a school of urban horticulture, and a coworking space.

the planned structures have been designed to allow for the site’s natural evolution, with connected roofs creating an urban farm dedicated to growing local produce. shared pavilions enable more of the site’s occupants to take advantage of the garden. together with the landscaped bridge, the planted balconies form a 3D ecosystem conceived as an environmental machine. see here for designboom’s ongoing coverage of réinventer paris.
