Practices lock horns in final stage of contest to create new district south-east of city centre
A team featuring Adjaye Associates has triumphed over a rival group including Heathwerwick Studio in a design competition to deliver a new business and residential district south-east of the centre of Paris.
David Adjaye’s practice is part of the Nouvel R team, which last month won the Imagining Bruneseau contest, tasked with proposing ways to deliver 95,000 sq m of new space – the majority of it residential – on a site next to the Boulevard Périphérique ring-road at Irvy sur Seine.
Nouvel R features Hardel Le Bihan, Youssef Tohmé Architects and Buzzo Spinelli Architecture in addition to Adjaye Associates. It won the final-stage run-off with Heatherwick’s IP Factory team, which also featured HEMAArchitectes, DVVD.
