Reimagining Paris’s Derelict Métro Stations
Hidden underground in Paris are 11 abandoned remnants of a dark period in French history: “Many of these ‘ghost’ or ‘phantom’ stations shuttered after the occupation during WWII.”
Entre Parisian mayoral candidate Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, who, according to a post by Stephanie Garlock has “teamed up with architect Manal Rachdi and urban planner Nicolas Laisné. They drew up a few crazy-looking renderings to get started, starting with Arsenal, a 4th arrondissement station closed since 1939.”
Proposals include a theater and a swimming pool, among others.
