Creating new bus shelters in Paris is above all a beautiful story. The poetry of the city drew us towards a minimalist design that establishes a constructive dialogue between memory and modernity. Paris’ flourishing vegetation inspired us to create island-like shelters that punctuate the city with their organic forms between the trees of the Grands Boulevards.
This was also an allusion to Guimard, whose plant-inspired metro entrances are still closely associated with the image of Paris.
