When we think of Paris, we picture the City of Lights, the City of Love, and its cultural, educational, and pharmaceutical superiority. Through our research, we concluded that Paris is self-sustained and will potentially continue to live on as an artistic and cultural icon in the future. Therefore, we decided that Paris 2060 will be an intervention with the Parisian suburbs, or <em>les banlieues</em>, as a way to address the growing gap between the inside and the outside, the inner crown and the outer crown, the city center and the satellite suburbs. Paris 2060 is no longer about metropolitan Paris and its defining infrastructures, such as the Eiffel tower. Instead, Paris 2060 is about bridging the gap and proposing a tentacular, interconnected center and periphery.
