2050 PARIS SMART CITY by Vincent Callebaut Architectures

Following the Climate Energy Plan of Paris aimed at reducing 75% of the greenhouse gas emissions within 2050, the “2050 PARIS SMART CITY” project is a research and development work on the integration of high-rise buildings with plus-energy (BEPOS) producing by solidarity all together energy for the surrounding areas. In order to fight against the urban heat-island phenomenon by increasing in the same time the density of the city in the long-term, this study presents 8 prototypes of mixed towers.

These towers repatriate the nature in the heart of the city and integrate from their design the rules of bioclimatism and the renewable and recyclable energies in short loop through innovative systems. Turned to new social innovations, they invent first new eco-responsible ways of life to implement the quality of life of the city-dwellers in the respect of the environment. This study has been carried out for Paris City Hall by Vincent Callebaut Architectures agency with the green engineering consultant “Setec” in the summer of 2014.

The Mountain Towers, Historic Paris – 1st district, Rue De Rivoli: Solar, hydrodynamic and planted towers bio-air conditioning the urban heat-island phenomenon. 2. The Antismog Towers, Historic Paris – 14th district: an ecologic corridor of 23 km in the heart of Paris punctuated by depolluting photo-catalytic towers. 3. The Photosyntesis Towers, Modern Paris – 15th district. Montparnasse Tower: a piezo-electrical and Central Park built in vertical spiral with organic facades of green algae.
