The Berges de Seine were redesigned to accommodate the new permanent activities !

Les Berges de Seine

Hosting international exhibitions during the second half of the nineteenth century, the Seine has inspired artists and Parisians of all time.

Each period, the river has evolved along the arrangements and practices that mark the history and development of the great monuments built near its bed.

To allow the public to rediscover this classified cityscape by World Heritage of UNESCO since 1991, this Project proposes today to offer all users (pedestrians, cyclists, motorists) a shared public space.

Barely a year after its launch, the City Hall of Paris invites Parisians to take ownership of their city and public space, and proposes new outdoor activities in this “place of the possible, laboratory where they invented requirements in respect of all. ”
