North-South Neighbourhood Link at Béthune station


With the addition of a park, piazza and pedestrian bridge, the project ensures a linkage between the town of Béthune’s two existing flanks, currently separated by a railway line. The project, which comprises bridge and landscape design, lays down a new development axis for the town and encourages new linkages through a demonstrative ecological agenda.

Pierres Vives District

The project involves developing a site belonging to the Hérault Regional Council with the aim of creating a new district where sport, culture and history will be the dominant themes. The central pole of attraction will be provided by the "Pierres Vives" building, a specialist media library to be designed by the architect Zaha Hadid. The aim is to permit this development to become an inherent part of the urban landscape, used regularly by people living in the local neighbourhoods as well as throughout the town and surrounding areas.
