Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France, subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, signed a partnership with Les Canaux to design and build a 170-square-meter terrace. Built from reclaimed materials along the Canal de l’Ourcq and beneath the Maison des Canaux, this terrace was drawn up by architect and set designer Myrtille Fakhreddine and urban gardener Cédric Derouin. A temporary space (the Terrace will be taken down on 2 September), built using materials from company building sites and other sources!
