The city block Les Fusains – Aubervilliers (FR)

A new urban city block
The city block of the Fusains is situated in the center of Aubervilliers, a sector undergoing an urban transformation. The block is characterized by the construction of a large housing complex in the 1970s on a former industrial site. The entire block is now cloisonne and its outdoor spaces are mainly dedicated to parking. The block is poorly connected to its urban environment and offers few spaces with an urban quality.

But,  it is located at the edge of a main urban axis and along a future inter-municipal green network. School facilities are located around the city block.Our proposal for a new street opens the block and creates a favorable street grid for non-motorized mobility. The project allows with the deconstruction of unsanitary housing and reconstruction of collective housing a new social diversity. With a new distribution of the spaces, it allows to offer to the city new public green spaces of 7000m².
