By Brian Spaen

Village Vertical” has been selected as the winner of the “Inventons la Metropole du Grand Paris” competition. France was looking for an innovative urban project with a focus on improving life and lowering their carbon footprint. This new structure, which will tower at 164-feet high, is going to be built at the Rosny-sous-Bois suburbs of eastern Paris.

The natural structure is a collaboration among three architects: Japan-based Sou Fujimoto and Nicolas Laisne and Dimitri Roussel from France. Urban developers La Compagnie de Phalsbourg, REI Habitat, and Atelier Georges will help in the construction of the project.
