Urban metabolism

City : Paris
Client : Ville de Paris – Direction des Espaces Verts et de l’Environnement
Team : Elioth

metabolisme.paris.fr, a website developed by Elioth for the City of Paris, is now live! The challenge of this visualization was to popularize the concept of urban metabolism, or how energy, material and water flows are set in motion to support a territory’s activity.

This tool shows concrete and local optimization solutions of this flow circulation, as proposed by the much talked about circular economy.


How could waste be turned into energy or reusable materials? How could we reuse materials from demolitions instead of importing new ones?

Built for the call for projects “Urban Metabolism Optimization” initiated by the City of Paris, the website presents multiple examples of effective and already operating solutions, as well as the laureate projects > here

It also provides access to contextual visualizations and comments from city to regional levels (Paris, Great Paris and Ile-de-France), trends… > here

An application which gives the user a platform for understanding and visualizing the materials, water and energy flows for Paris and its region, carried out on behalf of the City of Paris.
