Description

Situated in the Folie des Merveilles in the heart of the Parc de la Villette, VILLETTE MAKERZ by WoMa is a new space dedicated to discovering and experimenting with DIY crafts. It is designed for everyone (kids, families, adults, entrepreneurs, businesses, etc.) who is looking to make an idea reality or discover contemporary creation technology in areas such as design, 3D, coding, textiles, electronics, audiovisual media or the 'internet of things'.

A collective laboratory dedicated to ideas and creation - a Fab Lab - with its own shop, VILLETTE MAKERZ is a space where creators can work, experiment and share ideas. This constantly-evolving venue also offers a 'makerz school', a programme of cultural events echoing that of La Villette , as well as prototyping and innovation assisstance services.

Viewpoint

The terrace of the Folie L5 on the second floor offers a splendid view of the Parc de la Villette, the Canal de l'Ourcq and the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie.

Garden

Themed gardens
The garden walk, or cinematic walk, unfolds like a film as you walk around the park.
Walkers will discover a series of settings, 12 themed gardens marked with walkways and, at night, dotted with lights. You can choose to visit different gardens to suit your mood: there are a range of playgrounds, wooded areas, sound elements, water spaces and meditative areas to choose from.

Community gardens
Created in 2001, the community gardens were inspired by the 'Planetary Garden' exhibition held in the Grande Halle in 1999 by the landscape gardener Gilles Clément, which was designed to raise public awareness about major ecological issues. Located in the former sheep hall, this 3000 m² eco-area houses various ecosystems: a grove, a wilderness area, a pond and dry-stone walls. These ecological gardens for teaching and community projects can be used as resources for workshops raising awareness about biodiversity for adults and children alike. This spirit encourages experimentation with organic farming methods and a more attentive observation of living things.
