Place de la République Redevelopment

The french architecture and urbanism agency, TVK - Pierre Alain Trévelo and Antoine Viger-Kohler, hand over the redevelopment of the Place de la République.
Inaugurated in June, the Place de la République is now the largest pedestrian square in Paris.

Due to its exceptional size (120m by nearly 300m), its symbolic dimension as a representative public statement and its location in the city, the Place de la République occupies a special place in the international hub that is Paris.

The redevelopment of the Place de la République is based on the concept of an open space with multiple urban uses. The elimination of the traffic circle frees the site from the dominating constraint of motor vehicle traffic.

This harmony is amplified by the serene balance of the inorganic element and a very gentle slope of 1%. All these elements contribute to both the interpretation of unitary materials in a perennial and contemporary manner and multiple explorations (colours, water, lights) creating different urban ambiances.

The Place de la République is now a new centre of attraction, a place for exchanges and meetings. Two terraces incorporated into the continuity of the square encourage people to sit down and relax. The south-west part of the square houses a 162 sqm pavilion also designed by TVK, a unique building, glazed throughout to retain a continuous impression of this singular space.
