Paris is redesigning the Champs-Élysées into pedestrian gardens – Fast Company
The Champs-Élysées is getting a major renovation—one that will remove most of the cars.
In Paris, the Champs-Élysées was originally designed as a place to stroll. But in 2021, around 64,000 cars travel down the eight-lane avenue each day. It’s polluted and noisy, and while the sidewalks are filled with tourists, it isn’t a place where people living nearby want to walk.
