Tolila+Gilliland, in collaboration with Arep, reactivates Haussmanian heritage buildings through urban porches, arenas, occupied windows, a found amphitheater, glazed attics, a rooftop pathway and offices resilient to change. Thinking about the future of this Haussmanian legacy requires a careful consideration of the ineluctable transformations of parisian banks as well as the challenges posed by the climate emergency and the city’s “carbon free” and “zero net artificialization” goals. The project is emblematic: from its roof cellars to its infrastructure, from its engineering to its allegory, but also from the two blocks to the neighborhood scale that is destined to evolve.
