Tourists and Parisian’s alike already spend a decent time underground in the city of lights whether it be shuttling to and from the French capitals various cultural hotspots or exploring the catacombs.

The scheme involves opening up the city’s 11 deserted metro stations  and converting them into public spaces. With space at a premium in Paris it seems a shrewd move by the politician who has hooked up with with architect Manal Rachdi and urban planner Nicolas Laisné to create renderings of proposed renovations.

The newly renovated stations could serve a plethora of purposes with art galleries, restaurants, theatres, swimming pools and nightclubs all being mooted as possibilities. Naturally it is the last suggestion that has got us most excited here at DT with the thought of wiling away the hours to good music in a Parisian Metro Station seeming too good to an experience to miss out on. So far the renderings (the nightclub image pictured above) have supposedly been very well received by the Parisian electorate so here’s hoping the plans come to fruition in the near future.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
