Culture and heritage, accelerators of the industrial reconversion of the Nord - Pas de Calais mining basin
La cité des Électriciens est construite par la Compagnie des mines de Bruay au 19ème siècle pour loger les familles des mineurs. Il s’agit de la plus ancienne cité minière subsistant dans le Bassin minier du Pas-de-Calais. Elle témoigne de l’architecture des premiers corons.
 
En 2008, la cité est progressivement vidée de ses habitants et laissée à l’abandon depuis l’arrêt de l’activité minière à Bruay-La-Buissière. En 2012, elle bénéficie de l’inscription du Bassin Minier du Nord-Pas-de-Calais à l’UNESCO au titre de « paysage culturel évolutif ».
 
En 2013 démarrent des travaux de...
The Cité des Électriciens was built by the Bruay Mining Company in the 19th century to house the miners' families. It is the oldest surviving mining town in the Pas-de-Calais mining basin. It bears witness to the architecture of the first mining cottages.
 
In 2008, the town was gradually emptied of its inhabitants and left abandoned since the mining activity in Bruay-La-Buissière stopped. In 2012, the Nord-Pas-de-Calais Mining Basin would be listed by UNESCO as an "evolving cultural landscape".
 
In 2013, work began on the rehabilitation and transformation of the town into an interpretation centre dedicated to discovering the landscape and mining town planning. All this is set in an environment of squares and gardens reflecting the importance of gardening in the lives of miners and respect for the values of solidarity.
 
Rehabilitated by the Philippe Prost Architecture Agency in association with the FORR landscaping agency, the Du&Ma museographers and Villar+Vera for the signage, the Cité des Électriciens is an example of the compatibility between built heritage and sustainable development. By preserving the existing buildings and assigning new uses to them, the project preserves and adapts the town to new ways of living and to environmental issues.
 
In addition, three bars remain the property of Maisons & Cités (social landlord), which has renovated them into ten social housing units, allowing the original use of the town to be maintained.
Grand Ouarzazate, an oasis town for the 21st century
Le Grand Ouarzazate, situé sur le versant sud du Haut-Atlas et à la porte du désert et de l’Afrique subsaharienne, est riche d’une culture millénaire et de sites exceptionnels. L’activité de ce territoire a été positionnée dans les dernières décennies sur son potentiel touristique et sur l’accueil de l’industrie cinématographique. Le complexe solaire «Noor Ouarzazate», ouvre un volet nouveau de son attractivité.
 
Les équipes internationales réunies par les Ateliers de Cergy ont été appelées en 2018 à effectuer un travail collectif sur un cap formulé pour le Grand Ouarzazate par le Gouverneur de la Province...
Grand Ouarzazate, located on the southern slope of the High Atlas at the gateway to the desert and sub-Saharan Africa, is rich in its thousand-year-old culture and exceptional sites. The activity of this region has been positioned in recent decades on its tourist potential and hosting the cinematographic industry. The "Noor Ouarzazate" solar complex opens up a new aspect of its attractiveness.
 
The international teams brought together by the Ateliers de Cergy were called upon in 2018 to work collectively on a course formulated for the Grand Ouarzazate by the Governor of the Province and the Presidents of the communes:
 
- To make it, based around agriculture and water, the foundations of the oasis, an attractive region of world level based on several aspects; cinema, the thermo-solar industry and tourism.
- To make it a model ecological town, a showcase for oasis locations.
 
The spatialised proposals resulting from this work focused on the following themes:
 
- To improve the quality of urban life by creating tree-lined public spaces, new housing models, adapted to the climate and current lifestyles, and to strengthen social life in participatory places in the different neighbourhoods.
- To rebalance the banks of the central wadi by reorganising mobility and reconsidering the programme for a vast "urban pole" to adapt it to current economic realities and to accommodate new facilities, particularly universities.
- To improve water efficiency by ensuring the sharing of water between domestic, agricultural and industrial needs and move towards food self-sufficiency by extending the green belt and reinvestment of the major bed of the Wadi.
- To restore the earth's dignity as a building material: as the basic material of vernacular architecture, it is - despite its insulating properties - being abandoned in favour of cinder block. Proposals have been made to restore the esteem for this ecological material and reactivate the industry and know-how through contemporary architecture, in line with current lifestyles.
 
Health and urban planning
En matière d’urbanisme réglementaire, l’agence a élaboré dans un premier temps en 2014 un guide « PLU et santé environnementale », qui permet d’identifier à travers 12 déterminants de santé les leviers réglementaires pour intégrer au mieux ces enjeux lors de l’élaboration du document d’urbanisme.
 
Les 12 déterminants de santé retenus sont les suivants :
 
  • Alimentation en eau potable et protection de la ressource
  • Assainissement des eaux usées et gestion des eaux pluviales
  • Eaux de baignade
  • Installations classées pour la protection...
In terms of regulatory urban planning, the agency first developed in 2014 a guide called "PLU and environmental health", which helps identify through 12 health determinants the regulatory levers to best integrate these issues into the drafting of the planning document.
 
The 12 health determinants selected are:
 
  • Drinking water supply and resource protection
  • Wastewater remediation and stormwater management
  • Bathing water
  • Facilities classified for environmental protection, including livestock buildings
  • Polluted sites and soils
  • Noise
  • Air quality
  • Urban heat islands
  • Power lines
  • Food and local agriculture
  • Physical activity and access to the city for all
  • Degraded habitat
A "vade-mecum" was then carried out in 2019 for the attention of communities in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region, for better consideration of health-environmental issues when developing a Local Intercommunal Urban Planning Plan.
 
This work is part of the implementation of the RHEP (Regional Health-Environment Plan) in Nouvelle Aquitaine. It summarises the approach by health determinants, and complements it by taking into account a number of regional specificities: population profiles, economic activities, exposure levels and pathologies with suspected or proven links with environmental factors.
 
In addition, in collaboration with the EHESP (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Santé Publique de Rennes/School of Higher Studies in Public Health in Rennes), a-urba has also developed a guide for integrating health into development projects (ISadOrA project).
 
Some 15 "operational keys" have been identified to help developers implement all health issues within the timeline of a development operation.
 
The results of this study were shared in a working group of 35 stakeholders from both the world of urban planning and health at the national level.

VEDECOM also has a training mission and a comprehensive approach to disseminating knowledge and research carried out within it.

To this end, VEDECOM has developed a catalogue of training courses for experts in industry, communities, as well as a series of fun educational devices designed to better understand the technologies and uses of the mobility solutions of tomorrow, because "mobility is learned".

The Institute for the City in Motion-VEDECOM complements this arrangement with the following actions:
  • About the autonomous vehicle:
- A knowledge-testing quiz on the autonomous vehicle https://formationvedecom.typeform.com/to/H5e8hf
- A "Robospective" board game that helps you imagine "mobile robots" and question the interplay around the services they could offer.
- A 45-minute e-learning on the autonomous vehicle:  http://formation.vedecom.fr/login/index.php
 
  • On the psycho-social, cognitive and cultural dimensions of mobility:
- A quiz "Which traveller are you?" with 17 questions: http://www.enroute-lejeu.com/quiz/#/start
- A serious mobility learning game "On the road!" to develop the autonomous mobility of individuals, aimed in particular at people in social/professional integration or in the learning phase (school).
Passages, transitional spaces for the city of the 21st century
À l’heure où la mobilité est au cœur des questions urbaines, on attend de chacun de nous une compétence accrue de navigateurs connectés, passant d’un mode de transport à un autre, parcourant des distances quotidiennes variées, dans des aires métropolitaines fragmentées par les réseaux, les infrastructures rapides, les zones spécialisées.
 
Les passages, petits espaces de transition, sont des maillons essentiels d’une mobilité durable, indispensables à la qualité de nos déplacements quotidiens et dans la conception d'un système de mobilité intégré. Tunnels, passerelles, escalators, téléphériques urbains,...
At a time when mobility is at the heart of urban issues, each of us is expected to have a heightened knowledge of connected travellers, moving from one mode of transport to another, travelling various daily distances, in metropolitan areas fragmented by networks, rapid infrastructure and specialised areas.
 
These passages, small transitional spaces, are essential links in sustainable mobility, essential to the quality of our daily journeys and in the design of an integrated mobility system. Tunnels, footbridges, escalators, urban cable cars, paths that facilitate the transition between modes, between urban environments...
 
The history and observation of uses show us that they are potential carriers of singular urbanities, atmospheres, activities, qualities.
 
However, these accessibility spaces are often mainly forgotten by the builders of our cities even though they do not require a lot of investment, they should systematically support major development operations - especially the new transport projects - and they offer restorative virtues to the fractures caused by the rapid transport infrastructure and zoning of 20th-century urbanisation.
 
Designing and creating passages means being able to act immediately, locally, and lay the foundations for a larger-scale transformation: "the small scale that changes everything (well, almost)".
 
An international research-action programme (2014-2018) developed in several cities around the world (Tours/Saint Pierre-des-Corps, Shanghai, Toronto, Barcelona, Sao Paulo, Valparaiso, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Santiago de Chile, Bogota, Nantes, Volos, San José, Granada, Algiers, Cotonou, Maputo, Tunis) aimed at putting on the agenda the concrete issue of passages within the regions:
 
  • Professional architectural and urban planning competitions for developing passage projects in 11 cities (Tours/Saint-Pierre-des-Corps, Shanghai, 6 municipalities of the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona, Sant Adria del Besos, Toronto, Sao Paulo) which mobilised 270 multidisciplinary professional teams, or about 1000 professionals of forty nationalities,
  • Student workshops with partner universities, and on-site workshops with teams selected during Phase 2 of the competitions,
  • The Passage Manifesto, a call for innovation and guide to promote the design of the mobility spaces of tomorrow, co-produced by the scientific committee, project partners and visitors to the international exhibition.

SYSTRA réalise une étude stratégique et opérationnelle pour le développement de Systèmes Intelligents et de solutions numériques pour la mobilité urbaine durable en Tunisie « Smart Mobility Tunisie ».
 
La finalité de l’étude est de favoriser une transformation numérique en matière de mobilité qui aille dans le sens de l’intérêt collectif, de la durabilité des systèmes de transports urbains (c’est à dire des transports accessibles à tous, sûrs, économiquement efficients, performants écologiquement et non émissifs de gaz à effet de serre), et du développement d’un écosystème national de l’innovation...
SYSTRA is conducting a strategic and operational study for the development of Intelligent Systems and Digital Solutions for Sustainable Urban Mobility in Tunisia called "Smart Mobility Tunisia".
 
The aim of the study is to foster a digital transformation in mobility that works towards the collective interest, sustainability of urban transport systems (i.e. transport accessible to all, safe, economically efficient, environmentally efficient and not producing greenhouse gases), and the development of a national ecosystem of mobility innovation.

The scope of this study includes all-mode urban mobility, which includes individual urban modes of transport (car and motorised two-wheelers), collective (bus, light rail), active modes (classic cycling, walking), new urban mobility (autonomous vehicles, connected vehicles, etc) and shared urban mobility (self-service cycling, car sharing, carpooling, etc).
 
The expected results of the "Smart Mobility Tunisia" study are:
  • Analysis of the existing situation in Tunisia,
  • A benchmark of the world's existing smart mobility solutions,
  • Development of a strategy for Intelligent Systems and Digital Solutions for Sustainable Urban Mobility in Tunisia,
  • Establishment of a priority action plan for implementing the strategy,
  • Completion of feasibility and pre-operational studies for 2 or 3 selected projects.
Gran Santo Domingo sustainable urban mobility plan
Mobilise Your City (MYC) est une initiative globale pour le climat qui promeut la planification intégrée de la mobilité urbaine ; elle vise à maximiser le potentiel de réduction des émissions des gaz à effet de serre (-50 % d’ici 2050), en particulier dans les villes des pays du Sud qui accueilleront la majeure partie de la croissance urbaine à venir.
 
Dans le cadre de cette initiative, le Grand Saint Domingue fait partie des 100 agglomérations qui se sont engagées à définir et mettre en œuvre un Plan de Mobilité Urbaine ambitieux. Cette initiative bénéficie de l’appui technique et financier de l’AFD  (...
Mobilise Your City (MYC) is a global climate initiative that promotes integrated urban mobility planning. It aims to maximise the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (by 50% by 2050), particularly in cities in southern countries that will see most of the future urban growth.
As part of this initiative, Gran Santo Domingo is one of 100 cities that have committed to define and implement an ambitious Urban Mobility Plan. This initiative has the technical and financial support of AFD (French Development Agency) and the MYC programme.
The mission of the SYSTRA group was to support the national authority in charge of planning and improving mobility conditions in the region for 16 months.
This assistance consisted of:
 
- Providing technical support for the definition of an ambitious action plan,
- Developing digital planning tools,
- Building the capacity of local stakeholders,
- Setting up a participatory process that allows, during the study period, the setting up of real cooperation at the Gran Santo Domingo scale (INTRANT, municipalities, ministries, operators etc).

In April 2016, ADDUAM organised a workshop with the FNAU Urban and Landscape Project Club around the town of Saint-Pierre: five days of visits and discussions, mixing analysis of the region, elaboration of strategies, collective reflection and formulating proposals, all orchestrated by the club's three facilitators, giving practical expression to the skills of the agencies for a multiscale regional project in association with local professionals from the town.
 
Saint-Pierre is a memorial town, characterised by its location at the foot of the volcano, between sea and mountains, marked by the explosion of Mount Pelee at the beginning of the 20th century, but also today a city of culture and brewing.
How can this territory with its strong identity based around the volcano be united? What overall planning strategy for a new urban quality, meeting the challenge of resilience, in a town marked by risk? What is the common theme that can assemble all the emerging projects and make the multitude of different actions a real political project? Deciphering the potential of a site, generating ideas, mobilising stakeholders and generating project desires were the challenges this urban project workshop in Saint-Pierre 2016 set out to meet.
DataCités 2: data use and sharing strategies
DataCités 2 est une exploration portée par le Lab OuiShare x Chronos qui propose une méthodologie d’accompagnement des collectivités pour la conception de data services urbains afin de développer leur capacité d’agir dans le domaine de la data, notamment en ce qui concerne la donnée partagée.
 
Pour cela, la démarche conjugue :
 
- Un accompagnement personnalisé de chaque territoire partenaire : République et canton de Genève, Ville d’Antony, Communauté de communes du Bassin de Pompey, Communauté urbaine Grand Poitiers, Communauté d’Agglomération de la Rochelle.
 ...
DataCités 2 is an exploration carried out by the OuiShare x Chronos Lab which offers a methodology to support communities in the design of urban data services to develop their capacity to act in the field of data, especially in terms of shared data.
 
To do this, the approach combines:
 
- Personalised support for each partner region: Republic and Canton of Geneva, City of Antony, Community of Municipalities of the Pompey Basin, Greater Poitiers Urban Community, Community of La Rochelle Urban Area.
 
- Inter-regional workshops: to share the ambitions and usage cases in the regions, their problems and levers to action with public and private partners, associations, experts, etc of DataCités 2. These workshops promote the sharing of knowledge, experiences and the creation of a community of partners.
