According to Ruedi Baur, designer and scenographer for the exhibition’s display, “from the public square under the banner of the “MAC VAL Station” we are welcomed to immerse in the history of the mapping of the territory of the “Greater Paris”, drawing from the center to its suburbs. A large animated table deals with the topography while providing a new mind map as subway lines 15, 16, 17 and 18 will succeed in establishing. Along with this, an interactive wall allows visitors to simulate and understand how to move in the network of public transport in 2020 and then in 2030.
