Vincent Callebaut Architectures has created “The Green Line”, an inhabited garden footbridge prototype that “generates its own energy from renewable sources, recycles its own waste and wastewater, and optimizes its needs thanks to Information and Communication Technologies”. Inspired by a fish skeleton, the proposal links the Bercy Village to the Masséna district in Paris, restoring urban connections and connecting the 12th and 13th arrondissements. Promoting social and cultural innovation, The Green Line generates a functional urban continuum between two entities separated by the Seine, the Parc de Bercy, on the right bank, and the Jardins Abbé-Pierre - Grands-Moulins, on the left bank. Through flexible and mutable shared spaces, Vincent Callebaut Architectures imagined a structure that “adapts to the needs of new generations and to new constantly evolving uses”.
