      This master-planning project for the Saclay plateau is a real challenge in terms of scale. The 385 km² large site is located southeast of Paris and stretches from Versailles until Massy, a distance of more than 25km. The site is meant to mainly host research facilities, different universities and their related functions. In total more than 5 000 000 m² will be built here in order to develop this area towards an international leading Cluster of technology and science.

      The master plan proposes a rather compact urbanisation as to preserve the existing agriculture and uses the landscape and the public space as main structural elements for the new university campus layout. A new metro line links the area to its surroundings as well as to the Paris city center.

      The campus Paris-Saclay is designed as an archipelago of different districts linked by a chain of public spaces and parks, co-existing in harmony with the existing agriculture and landscape. The different buildings are currently object of international architectural competitions, and their construction has started.

      In 2014, the client decided to organise an exhibition to communicate the project to the public. XDGA designed a scenography in order to communicate the different aspects and interests of the project to the large public
