The Garden Landscape Guide

Jardin Atlantique Paris

A roof garden above a major railway terminus. Since trains run from the Gare Monparnesse to the Atlantic coast, a maritime theme was adopted for the design. It has wave patterns, giant meterological instruments, dune planting, board walks, a symbolic cliff, boats and a sun-bathing deck. The illusion works best on hot days.

Gare Montparnasse, Boulevard de Vaugirard, Ile-de-France, Paris, France
