In order to cut down on costs, these adorable follies will be of a standard size and will be constructed by local companies [2], making them a project for Paris by Paris. The park – designed to be an ecological showcase for city residents and visitors – will create a 113 hectare extension to the city’s northern end. By installing the minimalist timber sheds [3], city officials generate the sense that a day out is more than just a bourgeois walk in the park. Love button anyone?
