About This Book

The thrilling urban experience of creating and developing a new city in France.

Val d’Europe is a new city created in 1987, located next to the first tourist destination in Europe, Disneyland Paris.

The challenge of this unique architectural and urban experience was to design, ex nihilo, a city that simultaneously represents beauty, practicality, and sustainability, creating social diversity without architectural discrimination, limiting the use of vehicles, and responding to ecological imperatives.
This book presents, without concealing the difficulties, the process that was put into place in order to achieve the same urban quality as Europe’s most beautiful cities.
