A stroll through the new district of Paris Rive Gauche.
Paris Rive Gauche, or Seine Rive Gauche, is a new area of Paris (ZAC) which occupies part of the 13th district located between the tracks from Paris-Austerlitz station and the Seine, until the ring road. A part of the surface was recovered thanks to the coverage of the railway tracks. The first building, built in the 1990s, was the National Library of France. The district alternate office buildings, mainly banks, residential buildings, interspersed to green spaces. The Faculty Diderot (Paris VII) occupies part of the neighbourhood. Many French and foreign architects and landscapers contributed to this project such as Christian de Portzamparc, Norman Foster (offices at the corner of rue Tolbiac and France avenue), Ricardo Bofill, Jean-Michel Wilmotte... . The neighborhood is modern, aesthetic (the buildings are of very varied styles) and functional, but not recommended for Haussmann style lovers . The departure and arrival is at the métro "Quai de la Gare" on line 6.
