La Nouvelle Scène was supposed to be a singular shape on the urban landscape in Porte Maillot. An undulating, white, vaporous monolith, organized around a green center, its façade of fine aluminum blades, folding back like a curtain in a theater, in front of a massive urban stage on which the concert hall stands. This fine metallic external skin is in constant vibration under the changing light of the Paris region, enabling the building to stand out on an urban landscape that is de-structured by the Paris ring-road and dominated by the Palais des Congrès and the Hyatt Regency tower. La Nouvelle Scène de Paris was to provide the city with a new public space. Naturally accessible via the large steps, planted with greenery, the piazza is the extension through our building of the Bernard Lafay Promenade. So, at the same time, it is a bridge, a planted garden with tall trees, entrance to the concert hall and restaurant space. Open and pleasant, it provides this part of town with a lively atmosphere thorough out the day. Seeking to use this attractive space to enable people to experience the joys of living in a city, there is also the desire to make up for the drawbacks thereof. The large number of trees and climbing plants, chosen for their aesthetic qualities as well as for their depolluting properties, play an active role in improving the quality of the air in this difficult urban environment.
