The proposal aims to create a new “urban sequence” that will act as the entrance to the city and create a new grid of greenery to connect the neighborhood and its surroundings. The plan is organized around 7 key principles:

  1. Productive Identity and Collective Memory
  2. Multimodality and Separation of Flows
  3. Ecological and Productive Landscapes
  4. Positive Synergies
  5. Economy of Conversion
  6. Experimentation
  7. Work Environment

The design stems from two existing sites. The existing Coliposte building has been reimagined as a hub for the French postal service, containing various workspaces and innovative user-friendly services, while on the other site, the footprint of an old paper mill is “rationalized thanks to an iron-eliminating treatment system and to an optimization of the raw material storage.”
