Dwellings in Paris 17

“The hero of the movement to dissolve the boundaries between architecture and nature is Edouard François, who set up his practice in Paris in 1998. In an early project, he commissioned a “green wall”: the type of tapestry of plants fixed to an external wall that has become a fashionable cladding for boutique hotels and shopping centers. But the client turned off the water system in order to save money.

In his next project, Tower Flower in Paris (2004), he resolved to make the living bamboo plots as inseparable from the structure as nuts and bolts. Does it add to the costs? The question is irrelevant: the client accepts he is commissioning a “living building”.

Hauts Maleshebes, Paris 17

Tower Flower a été livrée en 2004. Véritable icône de l’architecture contemporaine, elle incarne l’expression du désir de nature en ville. Christian de Portzamparc, architecte en chef de la ZAC des Hauts Malesherbes, nous avait donné carte blanche. Située face au parc, Tower Flower en constitue la prolongation à la verticale.

Avec ses pots de fleurs géants suspendus aux balcons, elle s’inspire des jardinières parisiennes qui constituent parfois de véritables prouesses botaniques. Ses éléments de façades constituent l’une des premières applications du Ductal (Lafarge). Les logements destinés à l’accession sont libérés de tout mur porteur et bénéficient du bruissement des bambous et d’une lumière filtrée par le feuillage.
