The Triango sustainable business park in Paris, designed by RAU Architects, SeARCH, and karres + brands, embraces the idea of a circular economy using inspiration from nature. The idea behind the proposal is to create facilities that can behave dynamically throughout their period of use and to use materials that can be used over and over again in the future.
The new campus will include over 41 acres (167,000 square meters) of modular offices, incubators, and ateliers, organized around a central park. It is marked by public spaces and inter-building connections, fostering synergy and a new way of working.
A robust framework forms the spine of the master plan, with three characteristic zones defined by unique site qualities. The urban zone is a compact strip, where, transparent, active, ground floors and open public spaces, consisting of gardens and green atria, create a lively urban character. This space has a large production greenhouse which will provide energy-neutral food and ingredients used in the products of the companies working in the area and for small local shops and restaurants.
The organic zone includes innovative outdoor areas for new ways of work and recreation, while the landmark zone forms a striking façade towards the adjacent highway.
