Text description provided by the architects. This temporary cover project follows the initiative of the city of Paris that aims to promote the use and re-use of bio-sourced materials. Elioth and 169-architecture defined several principles for the realisation of this project in order to limit its carbon impact.

Firstly, the load carrying part of the structure, with a max span of 15m, is constructed in laminated timber (larch). Similarly, the structure of the façade, acting as protection railing, is made up of a wooden frame in the form of vertical units of brackets, in larch as well.

This structure was deliberately designed using the principles of a very low-carbon construction, encouraging the use of short supply chains.
