Neighbourhood house, library/media library, urban planning for the transition and sustainable transformation of the Mas du Taureau neighbourhood
Mas du Taureau, Vaulx-en-Velin
15 000 000e
June 2016 (proposal)
The Mas du Taureau district (Vaulx-en-Velin) is undergoing major changes. As part of a typical “ideas competition” exercise, the choice was made to focus on a process rather than an architecture.
Indeed, we believe that a building, whatever its program, could not respond alone to the problems affecting the neighbourhood.
Two questions guide this reflection:
How can we ensure that users reappropriate neglected public spaces?
How to accompany them in an urban fabric in full transformation?
This proposal is rooted in the idea that architecture and urban planning must be included in a bottom-up process, shared with the population.
The objective is to submit a proposal around the combination of this “social design” and the programmatic constraints to which we are subject.
