On the Future of Paris and Transnational Cities

Jean-Louis Missika, Assistant Mayor in charge of the Grand Paris project shares his views on creativity, the digital age and the city

In their article titled “Liberté, Digitalité and Créativité”, MONU Magazine discusses with the Assistant Mayor of Paris, Jean-Louis Missika, who is also in charge of the Grand Paris project which has the ambition of transforming the French capital for the needs of our century.

Hooray, one of us!
