Toulouse entrusted us the P3 silo car park in La Cartoucherie neighbourhood - its symbol: a large facade of champagne coloured woven on the slab edges perforated metal sheet; Cergy invites us to redevelop the Préfecture exchange hub - the bus station will become Place Basse in the city centre, and Geneva commissions the extension of tram Line 15 from the Place des Nations to the airport and the French border; while Ile-de-France Mobilités (formerly STIF) commissions T Zen 5 which will cross our planted bridge currently under construction in Vitry-les-Ardoines.
