Ilot de l’Octroi in Rennes, France by MVRDV

 
November 19th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MVRDV 

Rennes dates back to the 18th century and is organised around two main squares, the place de la Marie and the place du Parlement. In the centre, old and new coexist together with Gallo-Roman remains, Louis Arretche’s futuristic Le Mabilais, Georges Maillols’s Les Horizons and more recently, the residential Cap Mail by Jean Nouvel. This Métropole is among the most attractive areas to live in France and its diversity of heritage and growth led to a shift in emphasis from the centre to the city’s outer areas connected by the pedestrianised Mail François Mitterrand. This move from a rural to urban context has meant denser developments occurring at the edges, to prevent encroachment onto the countryside. The growth in population and industry has called for measures to cope with future change, most notably for more housing and efficient transport routes. MVRDV, ALL and Giboire respond to this need for more sustainable housing communities and will contribute to the expansion of the centre by breathing new life and refocusing communities along the rivers.

Bibliothèque Alexis de Tocqueville in Caen, France by OMA

Article source: OMA 

Bibliothèque Alexis de Tocqueville is a public library for the metropolitan region Caen la Mer in Normandy, France. The 12,000 m2 multimedia library is located at the tip of the peninsula that extends out from the city of Caen to the English Channel. Its key position – between the city’s historic core and an area of Caen that is being developed – supports the city’s ambition for the library to become a new civic center. The library’s glass facade visually connects the adjacent park, pedestrian pathway and waterfront plaza to the interior and together with two large ground floor entrances at both sides of the building, enables a fluid interaction of the library with its surroundings. On the upper floors, the urban belvedere provides unobstructed views in all four directions.
