Paris avant, c'était libéré, Paris aujourd'hui, c'est bourré de no-go zones, mais Paris demain ? L'agence Ecologie Urbaine a donc demandé à l'architecte Vincent Callebaut, accompagné d'un cabinet d'ingénieur, d'imaginer un Paris plus vert et plus beau en 2050. Il a souhaité une ville "smart", durable, dense et connectée. Résultat : beaucoup d'arbres, des éoliennes, des tours lumineuses et sûrement beaucoup de bornes Wi-Fi.

    MANGROVE TOWERS, PARIS SMART CITY 2050 _ 10th district _ GARE DU NORD, Photosensitive towers rooted on the piezo-electrical station platforms by @vincentcallebautarchitectures ??? In Paris, the railway network of the seven SNCF train stations represent a total surface area of several tens of hectares that will get vertically denser within 2050. For its capacity of travelers, the Gare du Nord is the first station of Europe in traffic and the third in the world after those of Tokyo and Chicago! In the heart of this European multimodal crossroads, more than 700,000 travelers will travel every day in the 2,000 trains on the 32 rails. The Mangrove towers will be built on this territory of iron and steel drawn by the forks of this intertwined rails. They will join the modernist neoclassical architecture of the Gare du Nord whose construction of the Great Hall dates from the universal exhibition of 1855. As their name indicates it, the « Mangrove Towers » will be inspired by the mangrove trees and their stilt roots. They will be implanted directly of the platforms of the Gare du Nord and they will ramify each other as ecosystem resilient to the climate imbalance. These towers will accommodate a mixed programme of offices, hotels and housing dedicated to international and traveling customers. True forest of planted towers, this urban mangrove will be energy positive, that means i twill produce more energy than it will consume (electrical, calorific or food energy). The station platforms will be full of piezoelectrical captors polarizing under the action of the mechanical constraint generated by the travelers. The tubular facades will be composed of Grätzel cells forming a photo-electrochemical skin inspired by the light (photons), will also produce the electricity by electrolysis. ??? #paris #station #gare #garedunord #france #biomimicry #mangrove #climatechange #architecture #design #tower #photosynthesis #piezoelectric #mixed #realestate #property #garden #landscape #density #sustainability #sustainable #sustainableliving #green #greenbuilding #greencity #permaculture #agroecologia #resilience #future #ecology

    MOUNTAIN VILLAGE by @vincentcallebautarchitectures ??? PARIS SMART CITY 2050, 1st district _ RUE DE RIVOLI _ Solar, hydrodynamic and planted towers bio-air conditioning the urban heat-island phenomenon ??? Paris has always been rebuilt on itself. Because of a lack of political ambition and visions for the future, is it condemned now in 2014 to remain a museum city or to gentrification? This is the question asked by the « Mountain Village» to the historic Paris and more precisely to the rue de Rivoli. The « Mountain Village » project aims at controlling smog, making denser and naturalizing thus type of hyper energy and space consuming urbanism by the construction of bioclimatic mountains integratingthe renewable energies on the roofs and in the heart of the blocks. The « Mountain Village» with positive energies will enable thus to triple vertically the housing in each Parisian housing block by distributing the structural loads through the old ducts of blocked chimneys. Three types of renewable energies will be available in each tower : During the day, two huge photovoltaic and thermal solar shields bio inspired by the structure finely cut from dragonfly wings will produce electricity and hot sanitary water. At night, a reversible hydro-electrical pumped storage station will let an urban cascade flow out from the top of the tower between to basins of rainwater retention tanks located at different levels, preventing the need of batteries to store the electricity produced by the solar dragonfly wings. Finally, the garden balconies will surround the inhabited storeys and filter in clean recycled waters rejected by the inhabitants by phyto-purification and bio-composting. #paris #france #urbanagriculture #archaeology #urbanfarming #ecology #sustainability #wood #timber #structure #green #architecture #makeourplanetgreatagain #food #organic #permaculture #aquaponics #solar #bipv #garden #landscape #vincentcallebautarchitectures #circulareconomy #art #photography #lowtech #balconygardening #nature #climatechange #socialinnovation

    HAPPY EASTER ?? PALINGENESIS, TRIBUTE TO NOTRE-DAME by @vincentcallebautarchitectures ??? Our Palingenesis project - in Greek ????????????, meaning "rebirth", "regeneration" - aims to assimilate the venerable stone nave, to blend in naturally as a vegetal graft harmonizing in one gesture - in one single curved stroke of pencil - the roof and the spire. Transparency, sharing and openness to our society's development: such are the ideas conveyed by this new, diaphanous forest of Notre-Dame, outlining the new face of the Church in the 21st century. A dynamic, agile and contemporary Church. Its pure and elegant architecture invites us to elevate our spirituality and adopt a much-needed and overly altruistic and humanistic stance towards the world around us, with a view to its better preservation. ??? #notredame #notredamedeparis #notredamecathedral #paris #parisfrance #rebuildnotredame #circulareconomy #crosslaminatedtimber #woodenstructure #clt #solarglass #photovoltaic #renewableenergy #climatechange #urbanfarming #garden #spirituality #ecological #urbanagriculture #biodiversity #socialinnovation #beauty #gothic #forest #victorhugo #catholic #tribute #green #happyeaster

    “BRIDGE-TOWERS”, Paris Smart City 2050, Green inhabited amphibian bridges across the Seine river upstream and downstream of Paris by @vincentcallebautarchitectures ??? With the objective of making the city denser by inhabited vertical ecosystems, the “Bridge Towers” project proposed the construction of two green bridges at the river gates of Paris. These two bridges with jellyfish silhouettes emerging from the water will link the 15th and the 16th arrondissements in the west to the 12th and 13th district in the east. They will be twin towers molding and re-customizing extraordinarily both existing bridges of the ring road in order to enhance both entrances to the city by the river along which its history flew from Lutece. Perforated by wide funnels, the towers will be supplied by electrical energy thanks to multi blades wind turbines replaced by hydrokinetic turbines (hydroelectrical turbines) which will use the kinetic energy (river motivity). The conveyors of these water wheels will enable to reestablish the rotary movement of the axis from the linear movement of the river. The heat pump will enable to capture the water calories of the Seine to heat the towers. By this use of renewable energies, the towers will be BEPOS building, i.e. with positive energy. These two amphibian towers across the Seine, will meet the housing crisis of the city of Paris by including a dense and mixed programme facilities , but also hotel-apartments to meet the needs of the « world city ». The inhabited bridge will reinforce the symbolism of the city and will refer to a new form of urban and social innovation in terms of clean collective housing with zero carbon emission and zero waste! ??? #paris #france #peripherique #bridge #tower #sustainable #windturbine #solar #seine #river #park #garden #urbanfarming #urbanagriculture #climatechange #climateaction #housing #realestate #property #apartment #officedesign #future #innovation #landscape #greenroof #greenbuilding #circulareconomy #tomorrow #sustainableliving

    “FARMSCRAPERS TOWERS”, PERIPHERAL PARIS _ 19th district _ PORTE D’AUBERVILLIERS A vertical urban farm repatriating the countryside in the heart of Paris by @vincentcallebautarchitectures ??? The objective is to repatriate the countryside in the heart of the city and to reintegrate the food production locally. True city district piling up mixed blocks, these Farmscrapers make denser the urban space by optimizing the quality of life of the inhabitants by the reduction of the transport means, the implantation of a domotic network, the renaturalization of the public and private spaces and the integration of clean renewable energies as the biomass, the methanisation, the photovoltaic and thermal solar energy and the wind turbines. This pioneer project aims for the 8 following objectives : 1/ The reduction of the ecological footprint enhancing the local consumption by its food autonomy and by the reduction of the transport means. 2/ The reintegration of the local employment in the primary and secondary sectors coproducing fresh and organic products. 3/ The recycling in short and closed loop of the organic waste by anaerobic compost, hydrogen fuel cells and phyto-purification lagoon. 4/ The saving of the rural territory, reducing the deforestation, the desertification and the pollution of the phreatic tables. 5/ The oxygenation of the polluted city centres whose air quality is heavily polluted. 6/ The limitation of the systematic recourse to pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. 7/ The water saving water by the recycling of the urban waters. 8/ The protection of the ecosystemic cycles in the heart of the city. It’s a project of BEPOS living stones reintegrating the biodiversity ! ??? #paris #france #urban #farm #green #architecture #sustainability #future #agriculture #organic #food #solar #energy #biomimicry #nature #city #ecology #agronomia #forest #solidarity #climatechange #station #train #covid #property #tomorrow #zerowaste #ecofriendly #housing #realestate

    “ANTISMOG TOWERS”, Petite Ceinture, An ecologic corridor of 23 kms in the heart of Paris punctuated by depolluting photocatalytic towers by @vincentcallebautarchitectures ??? Deserted by the Parisians because of the competition of the subway, the line is for most of the route, closed to the traffic of travelers from the 23rd July 2014. Nowadays, 60% of the line is outside (open trench, in backfill, or viaduct). The remaining 40% are underground, in covered trench or in tunnel. In this context, the « Antismog Towers » plan to renaturalize the railway lines into green areas by the integration of community food gardens cultivated by the residents. The cycle paths and the urban vegetable gardens will be implemented vertically around the cyclonic towers depolluting the grounds by hydroponic phyto-purification and filtering the atmospheric smog thanks to their photocatalytic structure in titanium dioxide. Energetically, these towers will produce electricity by the integration of axial wind turbines of Darrieus type in the strengthened facade on the one hand and on the other hanf in photovoltaic flexible textile that enable the rainwater and dew on the roof. Regarding the thermal part, the temperature differential with the tunnels of the Petite Ceinture will be used to create geothermal cooling/heating tubes enabling to bio-air condition passively the surrounding air inside the tower. These tunnels will be lighted by piezoelectrical promenades. ??? #paris #petiteceinture #spiral #antismog #france #biomimicry #zeropollution #climatechange #architecture #design #tower #photosynthesis #solar #mixed #realestate #property #garden #landscape #density #sustainability #sustainable #sustainableliving #catalyst #greenbuilding #greencity #permaculture #agroecologia #resilience #future #ecology
