Health and well-being, teaching and research, urban mixing at the scale of the cluster along with the Ville Ressource and its major infrastructures all constitute the pillars of our culture and agency activity.
These four pillars, combined with other areas of focus - airports, service sector and sport -, determine the project territories and fundamental questioning on the major urban and social transformations. They stem from a keen eye for the complexity of the contemporary city and our ability to pool experiences and know-how.
Born of a shared collective curiosity and multi-disciplinary practice, these wide-ranging topics are addressed in a scalable, pragmatic and enlightened way : by gathering and networking knowledge, skills and expertise.
