As part of the 2nd edition of “Reinventing Paris” (Beneath the City), an innovative urban project to transform Paris’s underground spaces, Viparis will realise “Peace&Log”. The sustainable architectural project submitted by Viparis, was chosen by the Mayor of Paris and a jury of urban planning experts and elected officials and will be located at Espace Champerret– an event venue managed by Viparis.
By separating off traffic flows associated with the Espace Champerret’s activities from the public sphere, Peace&Log will optimise the venue’s logistics while improving residents’ quality of life. Delivery vehicles will have access to a dedicated dock – a former service station – located in a lower level of Espace Champerret. Moreover, Viparis and its partner Agripolis will use the transformation of the Espace Champerret site to set up the first multimodal food cooperative selling Parisian agricultural products – part of the produce offered for sale will come from the world’s largest urban rooftop farm located atop the future Pavilion 6 at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. The farm is expected to open in late 2019. At the same time, an innovative baggage management platform will allow visitors to Espace Champerret to check their luggage, encouraging them to use public transport rather than taxis.
