mathieu lehanneur designs 'escale numérique' for JCDecaux

french designer mathieu lehanneur has completed his first urban development, ‘escale numérique’, for JCDecaux the world’s leading outdoor advertising company. the shelter features a green roof covered in foliage, reminiscent of a garden placed on top of tree trunks. swivel seating is provided for citizens which are made of concrete with mini tables and are equipped with plugs for laptop use. a large touch screen gives updated information about services happening in the city such as guides, news and interactive signage for tourists and visitors. the unit is designed to be viewed from above than at ground level dictating a new language in civic architecture.

  • I wish i had one of these in the park beside my house. Normally i hate this kind of stuff, but i think it looks good. Not too kitch. Elegant and risky, well done JCDecaux for supporting something original for the public realm.
