This second book issued from a collection of monographic works dedicated to projects made by h2o architectes looks back at Place de la Madeleine in Paris. With a tight budget and many constraints, h2o architectes have pulled off a major use revolution at the Madeleine by giving back 4,500 square meters to pedestrians—a huge gain of 40% that was achieved almost by stealth, no opportunity having been lost to claw back space from the automobile.

With a text by Andrew Ayers and photographs by Myr Muratet and Julien Lelièvre.
