Parisian Parc de La Villette is not merely a park but also an animated place, with cultural structures of all dimensions disseminated on its 55 hectares. The City of Science and Industry (Europe’s largest science museum) is one of the most famousパリの公園ラ・ヴィレットは、ただの公園ではない。55ヘクタールもある広大な敷地内に人工的な建築物やオブジェが点在する活気ある場所。有名なヨーロッパ最大の科学産業博物館や、ラ・ヴィレットにはクリスチャン・デ・ポルザンパルクの建築による「音楽都市」など様々な音楽施設や常設のサーカステントも兼ね備えている。有名建築家ジャン・ヌーヴェルによる巨大なシンフォニー・ホール、ラ・フィルハーモニー・デ・パリ(交響楽ホール)も2014年にオープンする予定だ。

, but La Villette also counts various musical venues (like Christian de Portzampac’s City of Music), or a permanent circus tent. La Philarmonie de Paris, a huge symphony hall by star architect Jean Nouvel, is due to open in 2014.

The park was designed from 1984 to 1987 by architect Bernard Tschumi. Based on Jacques Derrida’s concept of deconstructivism, La Villette also expresses convergence and connections, two master words for Tschumi. The visitors can stroll in the gigantic natural space, but also make stimulating discoveries, in a relaxed atmosphere. Divided by a canal, the park is crossed by two main axes: one running along the water, one from North to South. A 3 kilometres long walk evokes a piece of film reel; bordered by ten themed gardens, it leads visitors from spot to spot, like a movie revealing scene after scene.

Before becoming a park, La Villette was the site of the Parisian slaughterhouses, built in 1867 and relocated in 1974, and of the national wholesale meat market. The huge cast iron and glass Grande Halle has been renewed to hold fairs and events. La Géode, an I-max theatre settled in a spectacular geodesic dome, is one of the strongest symbols of La Villette, like Tschumi’s red metallic “follies”, which punctuate the park and recall the extravagant architectures of the same name, very popular in French and English gardens during the 18th century.

The large array of venues hosted in the park makes it attractive to all kind of audiences. La Villette has met with many criticisms, but has also become a favourite for Parisians in search of nature and of some space for children to play. It is particularly lively in the summer, with its outdoor movie theatre. Without borders or barriers, it is constantly opened, a large space of free circulation in the city. A place to rediscover at each visit!
