Europan 14: Productive Angers





Production in cities is changing in two ways. Firstly, it is embracing a new relationship with local markets through ‘value’ and locally produced food and products. Secondly, it is the importance of knowledge based specialisation which may target a particular industry.


"The preparation, The cultivation, The harvest" project proposal got shortlisted to Top 6 among all entries. BAULAND together with OSMOS network collaborated on a Europan 14 competition project to develop a future vision for Angers derelict and mostly abandoned industrial part of the city.



Location: Angers, France
Year: 2014
Project type: Competition
Collaboration:  OSMOS, Adrian Vickery Hill, Andrew Reynolds









Angers has the great fortune of having Saint-Serge. While many cities have pushed production out of their city centres, turning former industrial areas into housing or offices the industrial area of Saint-Serge offers Angers a huge opportunity. The opportunity to create a new neighbourhood that demonstrates a unique collaboration between production, living, working and play. A place that drives innovation, takes advantage of the shared economy, and benefits the whole of the city to strengthen Anger’s position as the productive heart of the region.







The proposal consists of process-based integral participation planning for 10 coming years. Solutions and concept ideas are focused not only on physical interventions, but rather on a complex development strategy. The opportunity to create a new neighbourhood that demonstrates a unique collaboration between production, living, working and play. A place that drives innovation, takes advantage of the shared economy, and benefits the whole of the city to strengthen Anger’s position as the productive heart of the region.
