IDEA

The Gare du Pont de Bondy continues the Parisian tradition of utilizing bridges as social spaces and cultural landmarks. Located at the encounter between the communities of Bondy, Bobigny and Noisy-le-Sec, the station is conceived as both bridge and tunnel wrapped around a giant atrium, connecting the riverbank to the train landing. The deepest train tunnels will now open directly to the Parisian sky, and all three surrounding neighborhoods will be united in a single inclusive loop – a new architectural hybrid of urban infrastructure and social space.

The Gare is the connecting element between the recently built parks bringing the canal back to evidence as a public space. The top light is the station’s element of reference: whether one arrives from Bobigny, Bondy, Noisy-leSec or from underground, the large glazing structure identifies the Gare.

 

In that sense this is not a building that sits on top of the platforms, instead it is a bridge that wraps around the top light, becoming a station and then a tunnel, letting the sunlight down to the platforms, and inviting travelers from all sides of the site.
