The restructuring of la Place des rencontres in Torcy was initiated by la Communauté d’Agglomération du Val Maubuée. This area is a flagship project for the town as the covering of the square, designed in the seventies by l’Atelier de Montrouge is a much loved local landmark.
To bring natural light in the square, the present corrugated steel roof will be replaced by hanging metallic sailcloths with golden reflections. The light filled patterns of the roof will spread on the ground with triangular flowerbeds and benches merging into its shadows.
