"Three ideas led our reflection, in the post-industrial urban context of Dorignies:
- Scales of intervention (spatial and temporal) and orientations of the project economy, to increase its frugality and sustainability
- Invitation to experiment citizen appropriation solutions, for an "inclusive metabolism" offering real opportunities for residents
- Search for the forms that metropolitan vitality can take in the context of a medium-sized city."
