The architect created a promotional film with <a href="http://www.squintopera.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Squint/Opera</a> that presents his proposed design for Europa City, a leisure and recreational destination that will be built north of Paris by the year 2020. Construction is currently scheduled to start in 2017.</p><p>In the first film, Bjarke Ingels introduces the project, whose plan consists of radial streets connected by a central loop pathway and adjacent quarters with designated spaces for a water park, an international exhibition hall, sports, music venues, retail, restaurants, and hotels. In a way, Europa City resembles the snail-like layout of the Parisian arrondissements. The second film tours each of Europa City's quarters through the use of photorealistic 3D and 2D graphics and stills.</p><p>See the videos for yourself below.</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/71428040/big-wins-europacity-competition BIG Wins EuropaCity Competition Alexander Walter 2013-04-17T17:56:00-04:00 >2014-01-11T12:09:25-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/5t/5t51i8qf4a4jil45.jpg" width="514" height="331" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>BIG, along with fellow team members Tess, Transsolar, Base, Transitec, and Michel Forgue, has been selected to design EuropaCity, an 80-hectare cultural and commercial destination in the heart of France.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html>
