River Champagne Bar Competition

Paris is the capital and most populous city of France. It is situated on the River Seine, in the north of the country. Within its administrative limits (the 20 arrondissements), the city had 2,234,105 inhabitants in 2009 while its metropolitan area is one of the largest population centres in Europe with more than 12 million inhabitants.

Champagne is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France following rules that demand secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation. Champagne appellation law only allows grapes grown according to appellation rules in specifically designated plots within the appellation to be used in the production of Champagne.

The aim of this International Competition is to design a Champagne Bar along the Paris river “Seine” and by the romantic “Pont des Arts”.
This competition hopes to achieve the following:

-Encourage and reward design excellence at a medium scale which integrates function, structure and details.
-Research and investigate the various combination possibilities to create a social space within the city.
-To generate the discussion of ideas regarding the relation between architecture and water.
-Encourage the employment of sustainable design in all aspects of the proposal.
