We are delighted to be part of the Gustafson Porter + Bowman led team announced recently by the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, as the winners of a design competition [Site Tour Eiffel: Découvrir/Approcher/Visiter] for the development of the Eiffel Tower site in advance of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Movement Strategies est ravi et très fier de faire partie du groupement, mené par l’architecte paysagiste Kathryn Gustafson (GP+B), lauréat du concours Grand Site Tour Eiffel – découvrir, approcher, visiter. La maire de Paris, Anne Hidalgo, a dévoilé le 21 Mai 2019 le projet OnE retenu pour le réaménagement du quartier de la tour Eiffel. Ces aménagements sont prévus pour avant les Jeux Olympiques de 2024.

The proposed design will transform a total of 54 hectares (133 acres) into what will become the largest public green space in Paris. The site stretches from the Trocadéro esplanade and its Chaillot Palace (built for the 1937 International Expo) in the north to the École Militaire (Military academy dating from the 18th century) in the south. The project is scheduled to be complete by 2024 in time for the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games, where it is going to host several competition events.

The Lead Architects are Gustafson, Porter + Bowman; Movement Strategies provided pedestrian flow analysis as part of a mobility team comprising of Devillers et Associés, CDVIA and Alain Bourdin.
