The Viaduc des Arts is a rehabilitation of the former “Viaduc de Bastille” carrying the railways of the Paris-Bastille – Vincennes train line. This rehabilitation project was designed in 1988. It is hosting a section of the Promenade Plantée, and many art galleries and shops. The design of the rehabilitation project mainly consist on cleaning the viaduct and closing the vaults with a glass wall on the two sides. The central part of the arches were cleared out in order to add relief in the façade and let the shadow underline the curved shape. This intervention enabled the use of the 64 vaults whose size varies between 150 and 460 m² and the implementation of a strip of art galleries and cafés.
