The Square Marie Janson is part of a sequence of large public spaces on the slope of Saint-Gilles. This project aims to translate from reflections on the soil of the city, the various questions raised by the public space of today and tomorrow, particularly on the aspects of water, pollution, car space, reuse of materials and uses. It is a long-term approach, which has defined this park as being designed for a century, capable of integrating the different evolutions of time.
