Creators of the Grand Paris Express
To conceive the Grand Paris Express, the Société du Grand Paris has called upon 37 architectural agencies such as Dominique Perrault, Kengo Kuma, Marc Barani, Elizabeth de Portzamparc, Dietmar Feichtinger, etc, two designers (Patrick Jouin and Ruedi Baur), engineers, town-planners, landscape architects, etc.
All of these creators – in total more than 1000 people in different agencies and engineering departments – are working collaboratively on the new Grand Paris metro. By calling upon all of these disciplines of creation, and all of the most innovative techniques, the project of a generation will be developed, with all of the artisans of the Grand Paris Express and its future users.
