dc.descriptionGeneral view, from near south entrance to park, where it meets the theater; [Chairs by Philippe Starck.] The Parc de la Villette was developed as part of an urban renewal plan on the site the former national meat market and slaughterhouse. Tschumi won a competition for the design of Paris' largest park in 1982. Related to his theoretical work on 'event space', his proposal for a distinctly urban park called for the deployment of a number of abstract, programless structures, dubbed 'follies'. It was intended that the bright red structures would then house various events and groups related to the activities of the park.
