The Cultural Block of Batignolles
Paris XVII

The new neighborhood of Clichy-Batignolles occupies a singular place in the parisian urban landscape. It belongs to the broad open landscape of the « ceinture verte » and assures the link with the specific scales of the 17th arrondissement.
Within this context, site number 8 is emblematic, at the junction of the great lines which determine this territory: the new north-south street, boulevard Berthier, the rail lines, the park. It benefits from an extraordinary potential for centrality to fuse public use and social connections. It includes several housing programs (market rate, social and middle income), retail, a municipal community center, a performance space, and a 7-auditorium cinema.
