The Project "The Clichy-Batignolles Ecodistrict"
Commissioning organisation: Paris & Métropole Aménagement (P&MA)
Students: Ky-Anne Dalix, Julie Guittard, Karolina Obuszko and Benoît Sénéchal from the Urban planning programme
In October 2018, Paris & Métropole Aménagement (P&MA) called on a group of students to conduct an 8-month sociological study on the practices and practices of the Clichy-Batignolles ecodistrict.
On the one hand, it is a matter of providing a diagnosis of the practices of the neighbourhood, in order to improve the consideration of the real needs of the inhabitants in the practices of the developer. On the other hand, the aim is to produce results in view of the ecodistrict certification stage 4, while proposing evaluation methodology tools that can be deployed on other projects.
P&MA is thus a precursor, since only five eco-neighbourhoods are currently labelled “stage 4” in France. This sociological survey is therefore an opportunity for P&MA to participate in a real evolution of the ways of making the city, by a better consideration of the needs of users. Already engaged in projects that enhance the participation of the inhabitants - as part of the development of the former Saint-Vincent-de-Paul hospital in Paris, in particular - it is now necessary to continue this effort on the basis of this study.
What is a workgroup?
Called also capstone or group project, this highlight of Master's degrees puts the students in professional situation. These have to answer to an order of a private or public structure on an urban or territorial problem (housing environment, planning, economic development, transport, mobility, etc.).
During 5 to 9 months (according to the course), every team from 4 to 5 students works under the supervision of a tutor, a specialist of the handled question. The project ends in an oral presentation of the students to the commissioning organisation. This period of renditions takes place of the end of May to the middle of June.
