1993 petition by architects and landscape architects against Highway A14 over the River Seine under St. Germain Terrace

1993 petition by architects and landscape architects against Highway A14 over the River Seine under St. Germain Terrace

Les soussignés architectes et paysagisles , manifestent leur
attachement au site de la Terrasse de Saint Germain.
Ils estiment que les conditions actuelles du franchissement de la
Seine par l'autoroute A 14 sont de nature à condamner irrémédiablement
l'ensemble exceptionnel de celle terrasse à la mesure de la vallée de la Seine.
Ils sont favorables à la poursuite du tunnel de l'autoroute et de son
passage sous-fluvial, afin de preserver la cohérence de ce projet qui en trois
siècles, n'a rien perdu de sa force.

The undersigned, architects and landscape architects, demonstrate their
attachment to the St Germain Terrace.
They estimate the planned route for the A14 over the River Seine, if it
goes ahead, will definitely destroy the harmony of this exceptional site, built
to the scale of the Seine Valley itself.
They are entirely favorable to the extension of the tunnel under and
beyond the River, in order to preserve the coherence of a landscape project
that, over three centuries, has lost none of its strength.
