  • How can we develop and build in the context of “Zero net artificialisation” ?

    23,000 hectares: this is the average annual area of natural, agricultural or forest land reallocated to urbanisation in France over recent years, the equivalent of 2.2 times the area of Paris, 33,000 football pitches or 19 million parking spaces. A figure which makes France one of the worst European students with regard to restraining real-estate development. The impact on biodiversity and CO2 emissions are such that there is an urgent need to hold back this effect. Although the target of Zero net artificialisation (ZAN) was written into the national biodiversity plan in July 2018, the strategy, method and means of bringing this into reality remains to be specified. Likewise the search for a denser, viable and liveable urban development model in large conurbations as well as town centres and small and medium-sized towns.

  • Cities to be: “From aspirational metropolis to inspirational city”

    Providing levers for attaining the goals of sustainable development, such is the ambition of Cities to Be. In concrete terms, this means pooling experiences, solutions and best practices, generating momentum among the territories, and persuading players of the building sector to commit to such goals. All in the aim of creating a denser, more resilient city that offers, quite simply, a pleasant way of life.

  • Terrasse des Canaux, a temporary space built with circular economy

    Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France, subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, signed a partnership with Les Canaux to design and build a 170-square-meter terrace. Built from reclaimed materials along the Canal de l’Ourcq and beneath the Maison des Canaux, this terrace was drawn up by architect and set designer Myrtille Fakhreddine and urban gardener Cédric Derouin. A temporary space (the Terrace will be taken down on 2 September), built using materials from company building sites and other sources!
