The starting point for the city is purely ‘to live’. The development of l’Ile de Nantes, its relationship with the sky, the earth, the air, and its large open spaces has inspired the opportunity to live within the landscape.
We want to explore and to extend this relational construction, something that, to us, represents the essential qualities of any habitat. This desire for exchange between a rich geographic environment and new spaces for living offers an opportunity to question our ways of living and to redefine their implementation. To do this we start from the space experienced, from the space of the individual. The new scenarios of life are infinite. We must not seek to stifle them, but rather to stimulate their evolution and transformation. New design targets need to be set that allow us to go beyond the typical programmatic features and thereby achieve real benefits in the places where we live.
