Description

What is « la Fabrique du métro ? »

It’s an experimental place designed entirely by the « Société du Grand Paris » to enable all professionals working on the Grand Paris Express to test out their concepts, from an aesthetic and graphical point of view as well as a functional one.

It is a genuine working tool, useful for architects and their ongoing interpretations, designers, graphic artists, engineers or even students to contribute in the development of the new metro.

Through this guided visit, you will understand how a tunnel boring machine works, you will find yourself on a reproduced future train platform to a scale of 1 (over 25 metres), you will see what a future reception area looks like, and you will discover all the projects on all the stations that make up this colossal Grand Paris Express plan... All this thanks to reassembled spaces, digital devices, computer generated images, videos or scale models.

Grand Paris Express, this human and technical adventure, will no longer have any secrets for you…

Organised by Société du Grand Paris & with Seine-Saint-Denis Tourism
