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 Tower. 

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.

 

Architecturally the park is dominated by two large, dramatic glass houses, with an area of computerized fountains between them.
