DE FACTO COMPETITION
Proposal for urban furniture – November 2015
XtreeE participated in the De Facto call for projects, a competition for urban furniture in La Defense, the Parisian region’s business district. XtreeE’s proposition is an urban shelter, allowing its users to pause for work, lunch, or simply to protect themselves from rain, wind or sun: the La Défense esplanade is particularly exposed to weathering. The shelter is meant to be built in 3D-printed and poured concrete, a technique developed by XtreeE, and offers several spaces on its walls for the city to advertise or inform.
