Located next to the Canal de l’Ourcq, the current Parc de la Villette is a piece of architecture and an ambitious town-planning program conceived by the French-Swiss architect Tschumi.
In the 1980’s it became the main symbol of what town-planners called the ‘Parisian eastside revival’, with the park being expanded in to include the former slaughterhouse district of Paris. We will see some remains of this prestigious past, such as the Grande Halle de Bœuf (covered market) and the Lion Fountain, but we will also see more recent buildings such as the Géode and the Philharmonie de Paris, erected by Jean Nouvel.
This urban park is even more enterprising with its numerous establishments and is considered today to be a cultural hotspot for art, science and music.
Discover this Parisian public park and walk through its 12 thematic gardens making up ‘la promenade cinématique’.
