It is a multi-scalar reflection. The answer was iteratively built between uses and rhythms. How does the city (an organism) live throughout the day (from morning to evening), as the week goes on (working days and weekends) and as the year progresses (the sequence of seasons)? Thus, project situations appeared on the project sites and beyond, with the aim of focusing on the existing city and the landscape in place, in short: to the « déjà-là » (already present). By a fine dosage and attention to context, the productive city appeared on different scales, from the metropolitan to the ultra local, to avoid the pitfall of a zoning response not adapted to the island of Bois Blancs.
