Paris-based architecture firm AWP has won the competition to design and develop 'jardins de l'arche', a series of urban spaces within the la défense central business district of paris, France. Public plazas and follies placed between the grande arche and the seine-arche will generate an axial link. Covering an area of 30,000 square meters, the masterplan will be placed above the underground A14 route, metro line 1 and RER A. A continuous ramp reaching 600 meters in length will create a fluid movement between the arena 92 stadium, terrasses de nanterre, residences and hotel, passing by extensive gardens and small scale pavilions for multifunctional purposes.

The new structures will provide an architectural continuity throughout the landscape merging the existing and new buildings.A large plaza and multiple kiosks will introduce a harmonious visual vocabulary which is also capable of withstanding tremendous crowds of visitors for events.
The fusion of spaces provide vegetated sanctuaries with the ability to activate different locations within the site.
