Paris Transformed

Yet another city with ambitious plans for the future (remember the Stockholm article a couple of days ago). Paris commissioned 10 design teams “to transform Paris and its surrounding suburbs into the first sustainable “post-Kyoto city,” a reference to the treaty on climate change, with an expanded Métro system and sprawling new parks.”
The plans are the result of a nine-month study commissioned by President Nicolas Sarkozy, and use transportation and parks as transformative urban design tools – an interesting similarity to Minneapolis and the Metropolitan area in general at a time when transportation in particular is expanding at a rapid rate and could transform the area, if planned and designed right.
