Linking Public Spaces


This project was based on the discovery and location of the Ruisseau de Saint Germain River. The river is located from the Seine river, the Rue Mazarine Street and passing through the Luxembourg Gardens. The major discovery was that the ‘lost river’ passes through three distinct open spaces. Therefore, this river is a link between these spaces, allowing them to be cultural hot-spots in Paris in remembrance of the river.
