After forty years of different projects, the new urban square has finally found its way to completion. The courtyard, which until now was grey and mineral, is replaced by a garden embellished with around twenty trees. The private space becomes a place of encounter and exchange. The street and its pergolas underline with its colors and scents the time that passes. The cherry trees from Japan open the blossom season, they are followed by the wisteria in the street and then pursued by the akebias with their small flowers and subtle fragrance, and finally, this symphony of color ends with the trumpets of the hummingbird vines and their large orange flowers. The modular lighting whose colors vary depending on the hours of the night and the events of the city life emphasizes this evolutionary spirit.
