"The project starts modestly, involving local actors to face local issues. Then it slowly gains momentum to provide public amenities and services on a metropolitan scale by working in partnership with private investors. We propose a flexible programming strategy which is tailored to the capabilities of each building. The “Grandes Manoeuvres” organisation coordinates all stakeholders within a participatory framework and spearheads each stage of the process, from funding to implementation."
