With a 35% increase in green space, the addition of 200 new trees and the incorporation of pedestrian access across the Iena Bridge, Gustafson Porter + Bowman’s landscape plan for the Eiffel Tower site has now received final approval from the Paris City Council. The verdant, future-forward plan won the 2019 international competition surrounding the two-kilometer area’s redevelopment. “The first phase will transform the roundabout at Trocadero into lawn terraces with fantastic views of the Eiffel Tower, increase the amount of planting around the Varsovie fountain, green the entire Quai Branly and enhance the gardens around the Eiffel Tower,” Mary Bowman explains.
