Le Parc Habité



Study on urban morphology North-South street East-West street   A central garden View from an upper floor

In this district, limited by the impenetrable facade of the Arenc train station and by the A55 motorway structure, the notion of “Parc Habité” contains two essential observations :

–  In its current configuration, the district terribly lacks  of all kind of public spaces equipment and mostly of plant-covered urban structures.

– To emphasis the evolution of Mirès’ set of large regular blocks instead of demolishing it. The notion of “Parc Habité” sums up the concept of aerial urban form and abundantly planted spaces benefiting to adjacent districts applied to this project.
