david chipperfield and sou fujimoto among 23 architects chosen to 'reinvent' paris

architects david chipperfield and sou fujimoto are among the winning designers chosen as part of réinventer paris — an initiative aimed at developing innovative urban projects within the french capital. the masterplan includes 23 schemes situated on various sites chosen for development by paris mayor anne hidalgo. studios were invited to submit ideas for each of the plots, before being evaluated by an international panel. other selected firms include X-TU, laisne roussele, and DGT architects.

david chipperfield’s winning design for the ‘morland’ site, extends and opens up the existing structure, which was finalized in 1964 as a city administration building. once complete, the two top floors will integrate an inhabitable artistic installation designed by olafur eliasson’s studio other spaces that will house a bar and restaurant. located in paris’ 4th arrondissement, the redeveloped complex will contain a mixed-use program including housing, a youth hostel, hotel facilities, offices, retail outlets, and a food market.

a towering project by DGT architects promotes a sustainable agricultural cycle, serving as a platform for advanced research through art and culture. across various levels, ramps form a transversal link connecting a host of amenities and attractions. the development is topped with a roof garden that allows the planting of vegetables, while educational workshops enable users to share and learn new ecological methods. an interactive canteen sells food and drink obtained from local sources, with a market that allows vendors to distribute the organic produce.

on the other side of the city, the ‘pershing’ plot is an under-used site located within paris’ 17th arrondissement. the project, awarded to japanese architect sou fujimoto, will help link the city’s central business district with la défense. in developing the scheme, fujimoto worked alongside manal rachdi of OXO architectes and renowned french designer philippe starck. see more of the selected projects below.
