In imagining a single metropolis between Paris and London, we found ourselves confronted with a space that has mostly been assessed in terms of competition (economic, financial, etc.) and that has never formally been studied through unity, apart from its inscription in inter-European organizations.
The two capitals are very different– almost too divergent to be compared–in terms of urbanization, functional economics, and scales. But could their dichotomy be the driving force of their collaboration? Could London’s lacks be compensated for by Paris’ strengths, and vice-versa?
