Gramont metropolitan gate – agriparc

This project set up a crossed approach between urban design and planning, proposing tools for both. We looked at Toulouse metropolitan gate as a door opened on a wide and fertile landscape, looking forward to understand its ability to improve the current condition of this peri-urban-zone. In this particular case, it isn’t properly a suburban area. Here in Toulouse, urban, commercial, industrial, agricultural and natural spots occur without creating a new urban condition. Deeply enhanced inside this specific territory, the project aims to raise punctual strengths more than applying a brand-new layer. Productiveness is seen as a resilient capacity to reduce, reuse, recycle, upgrade and reveal everything that is already there.
