Bridging productivities — Romainville / Grand Paris
A productive and inclusive city uses its grown diversity to develop a breeding ground for what else can come. We pose the question of spatial requirements for interaction and adequate change. We reflect on the role of public space and want to discuss its potential in our built environment.
The proposal connects different layers of the area. A local key figure is the existing highway overpass as a binding element between existing and new identities. The bridge provides public spaces with various qualities and the saved money for demolition costs is directly reinvested into local potentials. A pattern extracted from the current fabric is extended across the new site evolving to larger mixed-use typologies closer to the new tramline.
