Val D’Europe, Bailly-RomainVilliers

Paris

The City of Val d’Europe welcomes 13million Europeans a year, mainly into the theme parks of Disneyland Resort Paris.

This urban plan for a new quarter in Val d’Europe set out the basic organization of houses around public places, routes & site access. Houses were placed at the perimeter of urban blocks, thus defining spatially the street as public space. The perimeter boundary walls distinguished between public and private.

The designs seek to define the major principles of scale, character, public spaces and the density of development. The neighbourhood plot is both complete in itself and yet, in context of the whole town, unfinished allowing for spatial functional incidents that connect the parts of a town.
