A group of residents from Le Bono, initially representing 6 households, decided to gather around common values in 2010 to design a shared housing project. Drafting a Charter starting from a founding text that combines living together, environmental concern and the social and solidary economy provided the common thread for the design and implementation of this project, which bears its name: “the Thread” (“le fil” in French).
Ivry-sur-Seine emergency shelter is located on the brownfield site of the water treatment plant, an extensive 90 000-square-metre parcel belonging to the City of Paris.
The shelter is part of the response to the arrival of around 60 persons per day within intra-mural Paris, women, children and men fleeing war-torn countries or misery. It was designed to shelter 400 persons, families, couples and isolated women for 2 to 6 months, while they apply for asylum. This settlement is temporary, supposed to last 5 years at most.
The contracting authority, Emmaüs Solidarity, wanted to design the shelter like a “village”, to offset its distance from the city. Beyond the reception hall, “streets” serve the different neighbourhoods (dedicated to families or isolated people and couples), as well as the health centre and store.
A 20th century garden city
The Wolf-Wagner neighbourhood comprises three major periods of Mulhouse social housing developments. Firstly, the “Cité Wolf”, which was built between 1924 and 1928 to be a garden city with 228 homes. Secondly, the main part of the “Cité Wagner”, which was built between 1956 and 1958, and was the first low rise social housing development in Mulhouse. These buildings embraced the era’s trend for large-scale building complexes and soon experienced the same problems these brought about. The «EUROPAN 5» programme, which encouraged European-scale architectural initiatives, would reverse this trend with the theme: «New types of housing, travel and mobility.» The City of Mulhouse, Mulhouse Habitat (social landlord) and property owners started to think about the neighbourhood as a whole.
