Urban landscape: green project for Paris

The project “Réinventer Paris” is seeking new ideas for urban planning. The contribution of Jacques Ferrier Architecture and Chartier Dalix Architectes would like to significantly increase green space in the French capital.

“Reinventing Paris” is a project initiated by the city that hopes to give innovative ideas for the development of the metropolis a push. Architects and urban planners are invited to concern themselves with various locations in the capital, including the central ring road Boulevard Périphérique. For the connection from Paris to Neuilly, the partners Jacques Ferrier Architecture and Chartier Dalix Architectes are planning an unusually green project: a network of gardens and green areas should provide the framework for greened residential and office buildings and create space for public life.

The roofs of the expandable buildings should also be connected with one another and have lush roof gardens – a tea plantation is planned, among other things. Pavilions offer residents the possibility to work or relax, even at airy heights. In the interplay of urban landscape and greened development, the project should primarily show how greenery can be integrated even more intensively into the city and the life of Parisians. A school for urban horticulture planned for the area underlines this approach.

LivePanels – sustainable green walls

Green walls outside and indoors have become very popular. They offer a bunch of important benefits e.g. fine dust absorption, insulation of sound, increasing air humidity, prevention of graffiti etc. Above that they can be very decorative for offices, hotel lobbies, restaurants, waiting rooms, sport studios, clubs etc.

There are many different systems around. The Mobilane LivePanel system is modular and independent from water pipes and electricity. It is very flexible and the modules can be assembled together even for very large formats. The substrate is light and made to enable plants to establish and thrive. The plant feeding with water and nutrients is ensured by an integrated irrigation and drainage system. Mobilane supplies the hard ware to interior landscapers and green professionals, who can use a wide selection of plants to give the LivePanel a very individual look according to the wishes of their clients. Mobilane also provides smaller LivePictures and LiveDividers, made and designed as room deviders to give privacy and reduce noise in a green and decorative way.
