Galeries Lafayette, historic department store (Cupole) located amidst the heart of Paris along the Haussmann Boulevard, is undergoing a major rehabilitation project for improving its pedestrian comfort conditions and reprogramming building functions according to a commercial general plan.

Systematica is appointed to carry a comprehensive pedestrian flow analysis, within the general framework of the ongoing rehabilitation and regeneration planning and design process.

The study entails a detailed analysis of pedestrian traffic conditions and traffic modelling of the current pedestrian movements and behaviours inside the department store, with a consequent focus on measuring and mitigating the impact of the planned changes.
