White Arkitekter and team selected for competition in Paris

As a part of a team led by the French developer Réalités and co-developer Immobel, White Arkitekter have been selected for phase 2 of the call for projects for mixed-use, low-carbon urban projects in La Défense, Paris.

La Défense’s objective is to become the world’s first large-scale post-carbon neighborhood. In 2021, the goal to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions with 50% by 2030 was set, compared to France’s national target with 40%. The Empreintes Call for Innovative Urban Projects concerns the transformation of five lots located at the boundary between the business district and the neighbouring cities of Puteaux and Courbevoie. Overarching themes include technical innovation, longevity, environmental excellence, and contribution to local life.

The call was open for French and international participants and the four teams qualified for phase 2 were selected for the quality of their realized projects, the relevance of their competencies, their understanding of the sites and their adherence to ambitions of the call for projects.

We are absolutely thrilled to have been selected for the next stage of this competition. Our team has been set up to innovate and holistically approach this ambitious project, so the next stage will be very exciting.
Oskar Norelius, Partner at White Arkitekter

Phase 2 runs until spring 2023, and the winner is to be announced in the autumn of 2023.
