Jack Bauer is back. But while the fans of "24" are celebrating the recent news of the CTU agent’s return for a gruelling ninth season of the flagship series of the 2000s, also the Grand Paris launches a first series of events with the same challenge on its territory. "La Grande Ville 24h Chrono" will start at 4PM on Friday the 31st of May, and finish precisely 24 hours later on Saturday the 1st of June at 4PM. It consists of a series of events that are staged, among other places, in Saclay, Roissy, Rungis, La Courneuve, Saint-Denis and the Confluence Seine-Oise. The joint venture of the Ministry of Culture and Communication, the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine, and the Atelier International du Grand Paris, is defined as an “action-research” program, at the intersection of works by architects, researchers, urban planners, landscape architects, artists working on spot, guided by local agents. The ambition is to mobilize in parallel the general public and the local inhabitants of the different sites.
