Magnificient Masterplan for Seguin Island in France by Jean Nouvel

seguin-island-grand-jardin-ouvert

Jean Nouvel recently unveiled the master plan for the incredible mixed-use project named the Seguin Island, which includes a cultural center, social facilites, extensive parks, gardens, shops, and terraces that serve as a destination for both residents and tourists. The new project will not only introduce additional public green space to the area, but the Seguin is anticipated to become a major destination for the city of Paris. Construction is scheduled to begin next year, and the new cultural pole is expected to open by the end of 2023.

The island was abandoned by carmaker Renault almost 20 years ago, and with Nouvel’s design there is hope that Paris could have a new landmark on its hands. A mix of culture, commerce, urban parks and gardens, the city is hoping to create an attractive destination for both Parisians and tourists to enjoy both day and night. The Seguin will establish a large complex of two music halls, a cultural hub of fine art and digital composed across a contemporary art foundation, an arts portal, galleries, and artist studios. A history museum focused on French collections, a vibrant commercial structure along a main street of 400 meters, with passages linking to the banks of the Seine and large squares gardens, and finally more basic leisure and entertainment destinations complemented by hotels, restaurants and a cinema complex.

Most notably, the green spaces will cover an area of 7 hectares, and set the path towards an eco friendly neighborhood, especially key as additional developments are anticipated to follow to project at hand. A 450 meter long glass covered garden in the center will house plants unknown to the Ile de France region, and when the weather permits, the roof will be left open to infuse the space fresh air. The banks of the Seine around Seguin Island will be a public waterfront promenade, and additional trees will be planted in this area.
