Europan 15: Auby
- by Local
If not the city but our life in the city were to be more ‘productive’ had more to do with the idea of being ‘meaningful’?
What if the notion of productivity was not focused on youth but overcoming a fortuitous age segregation to focus on senior? The Urban Loop in Auby brings this together in a framework harnessing effort made and other needed around the idea of Age-integration and Health. With new streetscapes, an inter-generational habitat partly self-managed facilitates access to learning, voluntary work, crafts, continue or start businesses, support research in synergy with regional actors and the youth. A forward-looking public/private institute sharing functions and creating mutual value.
The masterplan comes to support and grow the offer of living in a meaningful city.
