Paris Expo Porte de Versailles is bringing about an environmental revolution in line with Paris’ new climate and biodiversity policies. The roofs of Pavilions 2, 3 and 6 will be covered with a vast grassy meadow, giving them a rural appearance while serving as an ingenious thermal envelope. A total of 52,000 sq. m. of vegetation will be planted on the site’s roofs. The grounds will be surrounded by a 1.7km-long green zone that will create a visual and sound barrier between the venue and the surrounding neighbourhoods, and concealing logistical areas from side streets.
