The establishment of the Regional Directorate of the Judicial Police of Paris, behind one of the last vestiges of the Thiers wall and at the foot of the new TGI, completes, with the future lawyers' house, the judicial city of Batignolles.
This building, which embodies the new "36", has not only a new urban image, but also a strong social legend.
The specifications describe a true fortress capable of resisting the strongest attacks that the criminal mind can imagine.
The monolithic volume, taking exact borrowing of the land limits, shows, on 9 levels in superstructure carried by a maze of basement, a matrix architecture, woven of raw concrete and striated stainless steel, in the image of a carbon fabric, in the effigy of the forces of the Order.
This robustness is only external because the heart of the building is conceived as a real cradle of suspended gardens, crossed by inhabited walkways.
Here the police brigades find refuge in a space of almost wild freedom to reconnect with a serenity so well depicted in Maïwenn's film, "Polisse".
