Description

This plan is based on the repetition of “micro” blocks following an orthogonal grid of small clusters separated by public spaces. The micro blocks follow different orientations within the site. Some of them are micro towers that create punctuated accents on the scale of the neighbourhood. The houses present very different kinds of open spaces. Some collective uses are spread in the area. The parking is situated on the ground floor, covered by collective platforms and it is not visible from the street.

Jury assessment

The jury was charmed by the micro-scale application of an urban “stamp”, but criticised the architecture for being insufficiently elaborated.
