Les nouveaux JARDINS DE LA VILLETTE,

Paris, FRANCE
Doing

The new gardens of LA VILLETTE, after major works of renovation of the Park, are now successful, enjoy...

THE VINE GARDEN
The vine, its foliage and fountains rethought, through an eco-hydraulic circuit box. I haven't seen them since it's fall but the pool will host hydrophilic plants.

GARDEN OF MIRRORS
Allows the installation of hammocks (summer dream). Mirrors reflected plant palettes with the seasons.

Garden feeder where former edible plants grow.
A first space has been planted as part of a participatory site organized by La Villette and locals with workshops on the themes of recycling, composting, technology, gardening and biodiversity. A second area is being installed by the collective Fab city. The third, planted with land living is a collection of shrubs to edible fruits (raspberry, currant bushes, myrtilliers) in picking free for the public. The garden is in the form of maze and the kids well.

EPHEMERA OF CHAUMONT GARDENS
Two winners of the International Festival of gardens of stay have reproduced their parcel at La Villette, near belvedere madness, the titles are inspirational: "in my bubble' 'reflection '. Until end October 2018.

JARDIN21
Located between the leather market and the Ourcq canal on 1 500 m² in mode wasteland, "cultural" with small markets, workshops for children, meetings around better living, exhibitions, aperitif in music, etc. A vegetable garden that values biodiversity in urban areas.

GARDEN OF SHADOWS
Near the Zenith, ground bursts of white marble slabs with fifty banks joining the drawing of plates.

GARDEN OF THE ISLANDS
On the other side of the Ourcq canal, small wooded hills and a sheet of water flowing on a tilted slab of granite, is the zen garden and night, green lights plunge the garden into an underwater atmosphere.

THE bamboo forest of 3,000 m² is the second collection of species of bamboos in France with 30 species. I admit I always had a crush on bamboos.

And then the aisles, large lawns or make a picnic (forbid garbage sorting and barbecues, drinking water points)... Water, improvised dance classes. Paris summer!

Responsible stance

Now everything is eco-designed:
-For the vineyard, the fountains are built with a cardboard eco-hydraulic circuit.
-The garden of mirrors is designed with a system of collection and filtration of rainwater by optimising natural watering of new plantings.
-The garden feeder is intended for the protection of biodiversity; It allows to grow edible plants with alternative production methods (culture on mounds, permaculture, agroforestry).

And then charge is also create social links: a space is intended for a participatory site organized by La Villette and the inhabitants of the neighbourhood with workshops on the themes of recycling, composting, technology, gardening and biodiversity. What better way to break the borders of a very mixed population such as this district?

Most of the spaces and activities are accessible to people with disabilities.
