VILLE DE PARIS

ardin du Père-Teilhard-de-Chardin
2019

L’aménagement paysager de la place de 1250 m² s’articule autour des vestiges de l’enceinte de Charles V dont une partie a été mise à nu. Des gradins la rendent accessible au regard de tous. L’ancien mur d’enceinte est symbolisé par la création en surface d’une grande allée cen- trale en platelage bois et par l’alignement en vertical de bosquets de baliveaux taillés en futaie. Un grand massif d’arbustes variés, un alignement de fruitiers, des massifs en accom- pagnement de la grande allée, des espaces en pelouse accessibles et des prairies fleuries viennent enrichir la composition de ce lieu de repos et de déambulation. La création de dia- gonales de circulation en dalle béton à joints enherbés et d’un parvis devant la bibliothèque permet à la place de conserver sa vocation de lieu de passage tout en aménageant un nouvel espace de rencontre.
Ce lieu, qui était un square et qui devient désor mais un jardin, conserve le nom de Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) prêtre jésuite français, chercheur, paléontologue, théologien et philosophe.

Translation of the text on the sign:
CITY OF PARIS

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin garden
2019

The landscaping of the 1250 m² square revolves around the remains of Charles V’s 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.
