Champs-Élysées Vision 2030
As a response to the side effects of capitalism, PCA-Sream’s 10-year vision for Champs-Élysées focuses on being sustainable, desirable, and inclusive by 2030. To translate a local syndrome to a global diagnosis, the approach combines both sensory and analytics. The strategy interweaves the city on five urban strata: nature, infrastructure, mobilities, use, and the built environment, with a focus on quantifiable operational priorities:
Reducing the impact of urban mobilities through narrowing the roadway and new noise reduction material.
Rethinking nature as an ecosystem through the planted “living room.”
Inventing new uses for the promenade with contemporary kiosks to diversify the surrounding monotonous retail.
Utilizing data for measurement and regulations.
