Point of Interest for Parc Andre Citroen Paris


The 14 hectare park comprises contemporary landscape architecture with some modern steel and glass structures at the south end. These massive greenhouses are among the top points of interest at the Parc André Citroën and house a variety of exotic plants of Mediterranean origin. Although they are reminiscent of the orangeries in the Tuileries and Luxembourg, they have a modern take, with gigantic high glass walls supported by a metal framing.

The cutting-edge urban park has been designed in such a way that the park map looks like it has been cobbled together from various spaces, with a large central “torso”, two “arms”, and even “feet” along the river side. The large paved courtyard in front of the two greenhouses consist of water fountains, making the whole design very unique and beautiful.
