(Uberbau for LIN, 2010) Most of the riots in the periphery of Paris in 2005 took place in the north-eastern suburbs. The study area is a patchwork of different fragmented urban areas without any sense of cohesion. Disconnected urban fabric, monofunctional use, huge industrial areas, large housing blocks and space demanding family homes characterise the area. How can a new form of urban life be developed in this area?
The project, developed as part of a consortium under the leadership of LIN, calls for a better connection of the urban fragments in the area and their integration into the bigger spatial system of Greater Paris. The diversity of the proposed transformations will not only improve the image, but primarily work on the physical conditions of the area.
