Want to see photos of the “urban renewal campaign” in Paris? Mayor Anne Hidalgo is taking the perfect approach: “Instead of a competition that awarded assets to those who offered the biggest check, we decided to make the competition about the most innovative and interesting project proposals, projects that would be eco-minded and of use to the general public.” Yes, yes, yes.
