Text description provided by the architects. This new project of ‘’the house of the early childhood’’ is to reinforce the urban character of downtown Clichy Sous Bois. It should complement other equipment already built and provide a new use close to the town hall and communal cultural space. It must accompany a new social and urban vitality in the heart of this area with great potential.
