EDF Low Carbon contest 2015
The 2015 edition of the Bas Carbone contest is planned for the first time at the scale of an existing district of Lille, at a scale of 2050. This initiative is part of Lille 3000, whose theme this year is “Renaissance”. This competition proposes to study the transformation of a neighborhood by projecting itself into the future, taking into account global warming and constraints to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Elioth has combined all its skills in urban engineering and design for the project «The Renaissance Factory», winner of the competition EDF Low Carbon. This competition was labelled COP 21 and offered, within the scale of an existing neighborhood in the city of Lille, an understanding of the necessary transformations that the city should undergo. It sketched a description of the energetic landscape by 2050, taking into account the consequences of global warming as well as the constraints of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Our project, the “Fabrique de la Renaissance”, proposes a very precise and clear prospective vision, a true account of the world and of society in 2050. In this global scenario, where resources are depleted, river transport and eco – electric cars dominate recycling and recovery of resources are the norm… Our project is based on the concept of factory (reintegration of city production in the service of the city) and the idea of an open urban system, constantly adaptable. The prospective scenario develops a principle of urban reconquest with several interesting and “futuristic” ideas.
