Call for candidates for the establishment of a Council for the Atelier International du Greater Paris (AIGP) – July 7, 2016
1 – Context: The AIGP is renewing at the heart of an emerging very Greater Paris!
2016 offers the unique opportunity to start transforming the AIGP, and adapt its missions and means: the AIGP is indeed being rebuilt precisely when the construction of the Greater Paris is speeding up and the projects & calls for projects are multiplying.
From now on, the Metropolis of Greater Paris is created, the Greater Paris Express project is progressing and housing production has obviously been rekindled. The emerging Greater Paris is now part of the daily horizon. The issues of its fabrication require considering global scales, which are difficult to comprehend (e.g. from Paris to Le Havre), as well as the metropolitan territories. Its works impose visions and images of the future that are still missing, and yet are called for by its inhabitants.

This capacity to have multidisciplinary teams led by architects question the public authority on major planning options cannot be seen anywhere else on this scale and for that long.
As it opens a new page of its history, the AIGP intends to remain this important place for debate and deeper studies of the metropolitan issues, along with all its partners, for and together with the stakeholders and inhabitants:
