La Friche Richard-Lenoir : a pop-up spot for fun times
Opposite Saint-Ambroise church, between two boulevards, Voltaire and Richard-Lenoir, a small group of buildings was recently demolished to make way for a new public garden in 2018. Before the landscaping work begins, this 3,000 sq.m. site has been transformed by the Surprize, Doppler and Earnest agencies into one of the capital’s many pop-up spaces. The Friche Richard-Lenoir – named after the French for “derelict land” and the boulevard of the same time – will host two large bars, food trucks, a kid’s play area, a petanque ground, a ping pong table, and an educational kitchen garden. Built entirely out of recovered materials, it will offer the capital’s residents a new space in which to relax. Don’t miss the program of evening shows, concerts and stand-up acts.
Until November 5
