Grand Paris metro in MAC VAL
The big event was the spring opening of the exhibition "Les Passagers du Grand Paris". At the MAC VAL, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Val-de-Marne / Vitry-sur-Seine, stations along the first section of the Grand Paris Express that will connect the Pont de Sèvres to Noisy-Champs in 2022 were exhibited.
18 models and perspective drawings of the preliminary designs were presented for the first time to the public of what will be the new "sensual" metro as envisaged by Jacques Ferrier, author of the architectural charter for the new network. Our two stations, Champigny-Centre and Bry-Villiers-Champigny, were particularly appreciated by the press; from Ville Rail et Transport to Beaux-Arts Magazine. And the maintenance and storage depot even caught the attention of President Hollande during his visit to the inauguration.
To the great satisfaction of Gonzalo Mouesca and Patrick Rochard, our two project architects in charge, who have thus undertaken the first BIM projects at Richez_Associés... and 5 more years of effort ahead before appreciating the shimmering ceiling at Champigny-Centre, the large south glazed facade at Bry-Villiers-Champigny and the copper north lights of the maintenance depot.
