#URBANISME What if we took the metro? As the first stations of the Grand Paris Express near completion, the Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine and Société du Grand Paris present a unique exhibition on the metro, its history and the urban transformations it has brought about. The immense worksite currently underway on the Grand Paris Express offers an exceptional opportunity to reconsider mobility on the scale of a territory - that of a metropolis of 12 million inhabitants.
With its 4 new metro lines, the network under construction will irrigate territories, create new hubs, and create new types of public buildings, notably to improve suburb-to-suburb travel: an infrastructure that gives shape to the Greater Paris whose contours have been constantly being redrawn for a century. Sixty-eight new "stations" in all, where architects and artists have worked together to design a place to serve local residents. The aim of this exhibition is to take an interest in both mobility and urbanity, combining the history of technology, visionary projects and the fictional world of the metro, projecting visitors into a new mental map of Greater Paris. The exhibition is a seamless showcase of French engineering in the face of the contemporary challenges of the resilient city and the ecological transition.
