Invited competition:
MEP Plateau d’Agy / Etablissement de directives urbanistiques First prize

Plateau d’Agy will play a crucial role within the city of Fribourg.It is crossed by an important road axis connecting in a few minutes the highway junction to the city centre.
According with the recent Agglomeration Plan, a relevant program of densification and regeneration is envisaged for the site, which currently appears as typical urban periphery.
The project is based on a clear and well detailed structure of open spaces working as a frame for the densification process, while defining the new urban identity of the site, as an extension of the city centre. This network will act also as a large scale landscape structure, minimising the impact of infrastructure and reinterpreting the role of nature within the city. The implementation process is part of the design strategy: a set of rules is proposed as a new “grammar” of open and built spaces.
