FROM HIGH RISE TO URBAN ART (13th) - With its concentration of avant-garde architecture and street art, this area has reclaimed the derelict land between the Bibliothèque nationale and the Périphérique. We will discover its unique, (sometimes) crazy buildings and find out how they are addressing the growing environmental challenges of the 21st century. The walk will also include a visit to Spot 13, a fascinating introduction to contemporary Street Art

DES HAUTES TOURS À L'ART URBAIN (13e) - Avec sa concentration d'architecture d'avant-garde et d'art de la rue, ce quartier a reconquis les terrains abandonnés entre la Bibliothèque nationale et le Périphérique. Nous découvrirons ses bâtiments uniques, parfois loufoques, et nous verrons comment ils répondent aux défis environnementaux croissants du 21e siècle. La promenade comprendra également une visite à Spot 13, une introduction fascinante au Street Art contemporain.

The walk avoids steep climbs and lots of steps so it is suitable for those with some mobility issues.

We will meet at 2:30pm at The Frog & British Library bar, 114 avenue de France, 75013 Paris (located just north of the junction Rue de Neuve Tolbiac metro/RER exit). Public transport options include: Tram T3a Avenue de France / RER C and Metro 14 Bibliothèque François Mitterand, Metro 6 Quai de la Gare, Buses 25, 62, 89, 325.
