Team Portrait

"The objective to regenerate the grounds of Fontenette is met through a series of strategies, such as the (in)filtration of waters, the cooling of the urban atmosphere, and the shift towards carbon neutrality. The project aims at establishing a connecting ecological infrastructure according to three strategies generating the morphologies of the project: (1) ecological corridors, (2) three soils, (3) connecting public spaces."
