CITY OF PARIS Pierre Teilhard de Chardin garden
The landscaping of the 1250 m² square revolves around the remains of Charles Vs enclosure, part of which has been exposed. Tiers make it accessible to all. The old surrounding wall is symbolized by the creation on the surface of a large central alley in wooden decking and by the vertical alignment of groves of balustrade cut into high forest. A large clump of varied shrubs, an alignment of fruit trees, clumps alongside the large driveway, accessible lawn areas and flowery meadows enrich the composition of this place of rest and wandering. The creation of circulation diagonals in concrete slabs with grass joints and a forecourt in front of the library allows the square to retain its vocation as a place of passage while developing a new meeting space.
This place, which was a square and which now becomes a garden, retains the name of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) French Jesuit priest, researcher, paleontologist, theologian and philosopher.
