"Aulnat centripète proposes a resilient urban model for the town of Aulnat, based on a concentric system that enhances the singularities of its urban and landscape context. This model consists of four strategies for its sustainable development, aiming to improve its climate comfort and the life quality of the inhabitants: Implementation of a new loop of local public transport, Management of rainwater within the public space network, Creation of interface elements with the surrounding landscape, Creation of a local production strategy.
