Re-enchanting the Champs-Élysées




On April 10, the Comité Champs-Élysées presented the results of the study conducted by the PCA-STREAM architecture studio, which offers a vision to “Re-enchant the Champs- Élysées” with the 2024 Paris Olympics and Paralympics at the horizon, and beyond. Supported by private sector partners members of the Comité Champs-Élysées, this study reflects a new approach in the making of the city: following Paris’ innovative calls for projects, the idea is to reflect on public spaces by aggregating competencies and practitioners from various backgrounds: tech, culture, retail, history, landscaping, ow management, event management, and so on.

Among fifty public and private stakeholders, CityScience was consulted as an expert in urban planning  in the research work conducted by architect Philippe Chiambaretta, the founder of PCA-STREAM. This research is a contribution to policy thinking with the stated objective of leading to concrete restructuring of the Champs-Élysées in the short and medium-term, both in its upper part and in the gardens and planted walkways in the lower part of the avenue.
