Le Serpentin Refurbishment in Pantin, France by Agence RVA

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

Article source: Agence RVA

From urban downfall to urban renewal

At the turn of the twentieth century, the Courtillières neighbourhood was in decline and suffered from a degraded image: the isolated community had become subject to overpopulated housing units, a deteriorated housing stock, an increasingly impoverished population, rising unemployment rates, tension and violence in public spaces and schools, and dangerously high rates of illegal activity.

In response to this alarming situation, the French state and local government authorities chose to implement public funds through the National Urban Renewal Agency (ANRU previously known as the “Grand Projet de Ville”) in an effort to remediate the existing conditions for the welfare of the community and its residents. To facilitate the process, the cities, Pantin and Bobigny (the two cities within which the Serpentin project site is situated), created a public interest group (GIP) through which a public tender was launched calling for urban renewal proposals from teams regrouping expertise in the fields of urban planning and design, architecture, landscape architecture, engineering and sociology.
