A 2017 capstone diffused by the APUR
- Couverture Etude © étudiants École urbaine
A capstone realised by students of the GLM Master has just been published by the Atelier parisien d'urbanisme (Apur).
Paris - London, one single metropolis? Are these two capitals sentenced to competitive comparisons or they can imagine a shared future? It is this question that Apur and students of the Urban School tried to answer.
This work was led in 2017 within the framework of a capstone between the Apur and the students of the Master's degree Governing the Large Metropolis, Pietro Buffoni, Mélanie Eck, Roxane Lavollé and Miranda Raschid.
From a review of literature and about twenty interviews with public and private actors, the study presents various levels of possible cooperations between Paris and London. The duo Paris-London is put in perspective by the analysis of three examples of cooperations between big metropolises located on several States: Hong-Kong-Shenze, Seattle-Vancouver, Copenhague-Malmö.n
The study written in English was introduced to the Greater London Authority in June, 2017. To read the study.
