From an in-between space to a territory of the Greater Paris Region
Greater Paris Region
Competition (Recipient Aegis Foundation Award)
The delimitation of areas (agriculture, forest, urban milieus) that we proposed is based on invisible layers, corresponding to the existing conditions (distribution of polluted areas, installation of infrastructure, housing areas and industries) and natural conditions (location of wooded areas, run-off lines).
The proposed Plain de Pierrelaye-Bessancourt project will promote the form of a linear forest intertwined with agriculture, inherited character of the plain and the urban infrastructure. The landscape changes with seasons and time due to the diversification of agriculture, forest growth and harmonious densification of urban fringes within the plain. This constant mutation represents the integral core of this of this project.
