"Fundamentally we start from the hypothesis that every inhabitant has a right to the landscape and to urbanity. To begin with, we observe and analyse a given territory in detail. Then we elaborate and submit a participative work process implying both the inhabitants of the territory and the different public and private stakeholders, the objective being the elaboration of a charter defining the shared rights underlying the mutation of this territory. Finally, this charter will guarantee the fundamental rights to the landscape and to urbanity. What we propose is a new model of circular governance, and not one of preconceived planning."
