    Michel Desvigne is attended as guest speaker from 9am to 11am on Friday 16 June.

    "Parks are the green lungs and cultural centers of cities, and are important places for people to relax, exercise, experience nature, and unwind. However, with the accelerating urbanization and rapid growth of urban population, the imbalance between supply and demand of urban public space is becoming more and more prominent. How to innovate and plan modern park cities and how to design and utilize pocket park space has become a major challenge in the field of urban construction and planning".

    The Guide Plan for the Jardin des Plantes of Paris is a landscape planning tool that sets out, for a 10-year horizon, the main lines of development and replanting of the Historic Monument.

    The Jardin des Plantes of Paris is the former royal garden of medicinal plants. It is a unique historical garden which is above all a living garden.
    All of its plantings are inventoried, referenced and labelled, making it a botanical garden.

    Like the Museum's other naturalist collections, it represents a scientific heritage and a tool for research and education which has been modified many times in line with the scientific developments of each era.

    The Guide Plan must therefore reconcile art and science in constant evolution; The aim is to preserve a remarkable and educational setting.

    Costruire il futuro : Landscape in action 

     

    LANDSCAPE IN ACTION

    Pendant trois décennies, nous avons contribué à la transformation des territoires. Des centaines de projets sur différents continents, sont les témoins des problématiques et des visions d’une génération.
    Chaque projet a été et est toujours, accompagné par la construction de modèles d’étude: ces modèles élémentaires, destinés à vérifier les proportions et la composition, sont souvent détruits.
    Il s’agit d’instruments conceptuels, éphémères mais néanmoins precieux.
    Ensemble, ils forment une sorte de matière vivante, une matrice secrète qui anime nos projets.

    Nous avons transporté à Milan plusieurs dizaines de modèles de travail qui illustrent la multitude, la diversité et la portée des recompositions du paysage en action.

    Morland Mixité Capital

    Winner of the "Réinventer Paris competition" in 2016, the Morland Mixité Capitale project aims to rehabilitate the former administrative site of the Paris prefecture. Conceived and designed by David Chipperfield Architects, CALQ Architecture and Michel Desvigne Paysagiste, it will reveal an original programme open to all publics. The project involves the structural and architectural rehabilitation of the former municipal administrative site, including the cleaning and rehabilitation of the existing building, the creation of two basement levels and the construction of new buildings on the Seine side and on the boulevard Morland side. On the ground floor, its paved courtyard and arches form a contemporary square, with active, inhabited streets and planted spaces.

    « Land and cities »

    La 2° édition de la Biennale d’Architecture et de Paysage d’Île-de-France se tiendra à Versailles du 13 mai au 13 juillet 2022. Neuf expositions seront présentées au grand public dans des lieux prestigieux de la ville de Versailles, qui interrogeront la place et l’usage des terres dans nos modes d’occupation et de construction de nos territoires urbanisés.

     

    Le lien entre terre et villes sera envisagé sous toutes ses formes : socle paysager, support du vivant, terres nourricières, terroirs regorgeant de ressources naturelles, aménagement circulaire, construction en terre.


    « La disparition de grandes surfaces de terres agricoles, la préservation des écosystèmes dans les tissus urbanisés, le recyclage des terres d’excavation dans le cadre notamment des grands chantiers, sans comp­ter le retour de la terre comme matériau de construction sont autant de sujets d’actualité, de débats et d’interrogations. La recherche d’un nouveau paradigme permettant de concilier la préservation des terres avec une ambition architecturale et urbaine renouvelée apparait, dès lors, comme un enjeu majeur des politiques d’urbanisme. »  
    François de Mazières, Commissaire général de la Biennale, Maire de Versailles.

     

     

    Dans ce cadre, l’agence Michel Desvigne Paysagiste présentera l’exposition « Territoire en transformation » dans la halle de l'ancienne caserne Pion, futur quartier Gally.

    A travers une sélection de projets emblématiques de l’agence, cette exposition explorera les enjeux urbains et paysagers des grandes transformations topographiques, héritées de la mutation historique de territoires dans le cas des anciens bassins miniers de l’Artois, de Meurthe-et-Moselle et de la vallée de la Meuse, ou induites par le projet dans le cas de la Lisière du campus Paris-Saclay.

    L’exposition exposera les démarches de projet menées sur les bassins miniers, français et belges, où les friches des exploitations minières, les terrils et les cavaliers, sont transformées en autant de « lieux » et de « liens » pour former de vastes Chaines de parcs. Ces nouvelles aménités paysagères de grande échelle s’appuient autant sur la valeur symbolique et patrimoniale des lieux, que sur l’extraordinaire richesse écologique et paysagère acquise par ces sites durant leur transition à l’état de friches.

    L’exposition présentera par ailleurs le projet de Lisière du campus de Paris-Saclay, qui a pour ambition d’articuler un ensemble de systèmes hydrauliques, d’aménagements écologiques, de parcelles expérimentales et agricoles, d’équipements sportifs et récréatifs au profit de l’invention d’un espace public d’un genre nouveau, à même de qualifier la relation entre le campus urbain et le territoire agricole du plateau. Plus généralement, l’exposition explicite le caractère pilote du projet de lisière, un modèle potentiellement diffusable et transposable pour penser la transformation de nombreuses situations urbaines contemporaines.

     

    Pour s’y rendre :
    101 rue de la Division Leclerc, 78 000 VERSAILLES.
    Accès depuis la D10. Parking visiteurs à proximité de la halle.
    Arrêt de bus Gally. Lignes 11/40

    ESPLANADE Paris-La défense

    The Esplanade, a major public space in La Défense business district, is part of the historic axis linking the Louvre, the Tuileries garden (Le Nôtre), the Champs Elysées and the Great Arche. One of the challenges of its requalification as a park will be to preserve the classical character that Dan Kiley gave it in 1972, when he proposed a modern reinvention of the French garden.

    Equerre d’argent 2020 Prize - Public spaces category

    Team : MDP Michel Desvigne Paysagiste, IHA Inessa Hansch Architecte, Artelia, SNAIK, Pro Développement

     

    What the jury thought: "A powerful statement about the dimension of the landscape. Without any anecdotal development. With a few lines and very few elements, this incredibly powerful project succeeded in transforming a place of waste. The public space catches the poetry of the void, the city, the ocean and the rough modernity of the Perret brothers' architecture".

    TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPES

    Publication director: Françoise Fromonot

    Birkhäuser, Basel. 2020

     

     

    For close to thirty years, Michel Desvigne has designed and implemented numerous major projects in France and around the world. This book presents in detail ten of these territorial scale operations. What intentions, strategies and professional culture underscore their design process? What landscapes and uses are produced by these projects that mature over a long period of time? In this book, Michel Desvigne reflects on these questions, which are central to his practice, and on the main themes that run through his work. His insights and analysis are complemented by the observations of architecture critic Françoise Fromonot, landscape historian Dorothée Imbert, philosopher Gilles A. Tiberghien and photographer Patrick Faigenbaum.
