Architects in Paris Want to Build a Giant Glass Ship Covered in Trees

New, 9 comments

Let's start by saying, we really hope this proposal becomes a real building, because if there is one thing that would genuinely spice Paris up it's a giant, block-long glass residential development shaped like a ship and covered with trees. The proposal, from Sou Fujimoto Architects and Manal Rachdi OXO Architects, just won the "Réinventer Paris" competition, beating out over 800 other entries, and you should probably stop reading this part now and start looking at the rest of the renderings.
