Living on a brownfield site
Frédéric Frank, associate professor at the Haute école d’ingénierie et d’architecture de Fribourg (HEIA-FR), was the guest of Prof. Emmanuel Rey’s studio at the Laboratory of Architecture and Sustainable Technologies (LAST) to talk about different forms of housing in the context of urban regeneration. Entitled “Living on a brownfield site”, his conference allowed the students to understand the main challenges of these changing territories and to discover several contemporary projects confronted with the specific dimensions of this post-industrial imaginary.
Urban agriculture at the heart of neighborhoods in transition
