Grand Paris Express, the development of station neighbourhoods, calls for projects for “Let’s invent the metropolis”, Climate Energy Plan,… At a point when Grand Paris is being constructed and discussions held on the subjects of the metropolis of tomorrow, transport challenges and environmental objectives, Apur is giving you the opportunity to dive into 50 years of urbanism through its Paris-Project collection. 

The Agency is engaged in digitalising its documentary archive and making its work more widely known and is making its whole PARIS-PROJECT collection available in freely downloadable format. 30 publications through which to discover a half-century of urban Parisian and metropolitan history.

During a press conference on December 9, 1969, the Paris Prefect, Monsieur Marcel Diebolt, announced the creation of a new journal, PARIS-PROJECT, dedicated to the capital’s urbanism issues. He underlined the existence of “an immense need for information on the part of the public as well as politicians and administrators in charge of planning”.

It fell to Apur to bring this new journal to life. Over time, these 30 publications, which were dedicated first to Parisian then metropolitan urbanism, turned into a collection, examining and witnessing the great projects carried out from the 60s to the present day: les Halles, the Development and Urbanism Master Plan-Schéma Directeur d'Aménagement et d'Urbanisme-SDAU-, the Eastern Programme Plan, the woods, green spaces, the Sustainable Development Plan, the re-development of the banks of the Seine, Grand Paris…

Some of these journals are also available for sale in paper format, through the library network (Pavillon de l’Arsenal Library, Moniteur Library…).

Other works outside the collection have also been published, in particular concerning projects connected to Apur’s international activities.
