Accordion boulevards expand above the existing streets of the city to provide shade and food kitchens on a street level reimagining American suburbia as Parisian boulevards that bring both the new and the old inhabitants together. Flexible and negotiable spaces inside as well as underneath the housing promotes sharing and neighbourly love.
The Gift: Freedom, Equality and Diversity
The project is the new 21st century Statue of Liberty – a gift from France and Europe to the USA in hope to convince President Trump rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement. The gift rethinks the American city, Paris, Texas through the values of the climate agreement and the romantic lens of French Parisian symbolism of freedom, monuments of equality and art of diversity.
