The Pershing project was won by the “Mille Arbres” proposal put forward by the Compagnie de Phalsbourg and Ogic, and Sou Fujimoto Architects; it proposes a model of sustainable development combining architecture and nature.
Pershing is one of 22 projects in the “Réinventer Paris” campaign launched by the Town Hall of Paris in order to revitalise neglected sites in the capital. This architecture competition focuses on protecting biodiversity and encouraging cultural and social dialogue.
The Morland project was won by Emergie. The Morland building offers unsurpassed views over Paris. At fifty metres high and located on the banks of the Seine, it enjoys a 180° panoramic view of Paris and beyond. Located between Ile Saint-Louis and the historic Marais neighbourhood, the Morland building benefits from a stunning location and exceptional visibility. These characteristics make it a flagship site in terms of calls for projects; its sensational enhancement potential results in extraordinary projects.
