The project is the opportunity to create a singular chronotope of Grand Paris; a symbiosis of space and time in resonance with contemporary reflections on the capital. A great challenge posed today by the metropolis: that of reconciling the extremes. Atelier(s) Alfonso Femia propose a spatial-temporal device for these issues, an architecture that is both pragmatic and poetic. The chronotope built in this way is structured around an architecture where space and time unfold, defi ning the bodily experience of places. The architectonic project presents itself therefore as a device through which to discover the history of this inhabited place and its future. This phenomenological experience which is created gradually thickens beyond any immediate apprehension.
