Jean-FranÁois Jodry, Patrick Berger, 1992
Parc Andrť-CitroŽn provides
fourteen hectares of mostly green recreation space in the middle of Paris,
reclaimed from the industrial site of the former Citroen car plant. It
borders the Seine on the left bank, a few blocks south of the Eiffel
Within the park, different
architects and landscape architects have contributed different zones,
creating an eclectic and attractive combination, ranging from glass houses
and strongly geometric planting to areas of wild flowers and weeds.
the park is dominated by two large, dramatic glass houses, with an area of
computerized fountains between them.
Simon Glynn, 2001
