In its present state, the Brazza-Nord area poses a fundamental challenge to the contemporary city. Its growth, its relationship to the landscape and the possibility it embodies, stimulate thinking about a kind of urban development that would encourage the evolution and cultivation of a real identity. We believe that working with the vectors of freedom makes for a powerful potential in urban planning. This approach leads toward urbanism that is liberal and worldly, that favors continuity, appropriation, activity and thus growth through the desires it arouses and permits. The future of a city derives from the opportunities it makes available to each and every citizen, from the privileged contacts it engenders and the invention of new uses that it stimulates. This is the condition required for the desire to live, to work, and to exchange to develop freely. This is a dream about building a society.
