"We tried to be ambitious, with the aim to do our best and create a dignified and beautiful space, and to create an example of how our cities can be more hopitable."
Julien Beller, architect

"Naturally, refugees have other matters than aesthetic beauty but it’s an important aspect of this project."
Hans-Walter Müller, architect and enginner

"People aren’t set to stay here, but to be helped here and dispatched in suited structures such as housing centers for asylum seekers or migrant shelters. We should offer the most benevolent and dignified welcome as a sign of national solidarity."
Bruno Morel, head of Emmaüs Solidarité

Films Paris Solidaire

"The Solidarity of Paris
Temporary locations to respond to the urgency of the situation
Locations embodying constructive, social, human challenges 
Locations that explain a way of sharing the city, a way of meeting together, a collective story.

For each location, a film.

Films in movement
To roam about these spaces that strive to show their welcome and their generosity
To show the mobilization of those who have built and breathed life into these venues
To express this new momentum.
