EuropaCity, centro urbano en Francia

El nuevo centro urbano EuropaCity, situado entre París y Roissy en Île-de-France, la región más poblada de Francia, ofrecerá una combinación de comercios, cultura y ocio en una escala sin precedentes en la experiencia urbana europea sobre diversidad y cultura.

El equipo ganador fue seleccionado entre las propuestas de Manuelle Gautrand, Snøhetta and Valode & Pistre.

La propuesta de BIG es una urbanización que combina la ciudad densa con el paisaje abierto, convirtiéndose en el punto de encuentro cultural y comercial de las ciudades de los alrededores del Triángulo de Gonesse. Como una ciudad tallada en el paisaje, todas las instalaciones estarán cubiertas con un techo verde accesible con áreas recreativas, senderos y agricultura urbana. EuropaCity estará directamente vinculada al futuro Gran Paris Express Metro que conectará con el aeropuerto Charles de Gaulle.


Original Text in English

The new urban center EuropaCity is located between Paris and Roissy in France’s most populated region Île-de-France. EuropaCity will offer a mixture of retail, culture and leisure on an unprecedented scale around the defining theme of the European urban experience, diversity and culture. The winning team was selected among proposals from Manuelle Gautrand, Snøhetta and Valode & Pistre.

BIG’s proposal is an urban form combining dense city with open landscape and will become a cultural and commercial gathering point for the surrounding cities of the Triangle de Gonesse. Like a city that is carved into the landscape, the entire facility is covered in an accessible green roof with recreational areas, hiking paths and urban farming. EuropaCity will be directly linked to the coming Grand Paris Express Metro to Charles de Gaule airport.

“EuropaCity will be an experimental hybrid between urbanism and landscape design: Center and periphery overlapped in the simultaneous coexistence of a recreational open landscape of rolling hills superimposed on an urban neighborhood of walkable streets, plazas and parks. We find that Paris these years is taking on a holistic effort to ensure that the urban periphery is given equal opportunity to be as lively and inhabitable as its historic center. EuropaCity will be an important step in this agenda.”
Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner, BIG

EuropaCity is organized along an internal circular avenue of retail, entertainment and cultural programs. Along the avenue bicycles and electric public transport bring visitors quickly around. The vast accessible roof features gentle sloping valleys and peaks allowing visitors to experience the panoramic views of central Paris and La Defense skylines.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with a project with this level of ambition. EuropaCity has the potential to become the most sustainable culture and retail city in the world – not only in terms of energy and resources but also in terms of bringing a new quality of public life into the Triangle de Gonesse.”
Andreas Klok Pedersen, Partner-in-Charge, BIG

EuropaCity is designed as a laboratory for sustainable technologies, and a showcase for viable green tech implementations that does not only save energy, but also improves the quality of the urban environment. The large range of culture and leisure programs like concert halls, spas, skiing hill, swimming pools and urban farming form an urban ecosystem where resources are fed from one into another. Waste heat from retail is channeled into leisure spas, water is re-used as irrigation for the parks, and EuropaCity will be providing the surrounding neighborhoods with district heating and cooling. The entire facility is designed to be powered with a combination of solar, biofuel and geothermal energy.
