Bæredygtig byudvikling: Vivapolis genopfinder byfremtiden

Anthony BATES - 12-mai-2014 13:56:31

  Sustainable urban development: Vivapolis is re-inventing the future for cities Imagine the city for tomorrow. That’s the daily challenge many French companies are ready to meet today, all of them re-grouped under the brand Vivapolis. French know-how in providing solutions definitely has takers elsewhere in the world. Today, major cities throughout the world are searching for very specific expertise when it comes to developing, renewing and re-inventing themselves. France certainly has the high caliber players -- Bouygues, Vinci, Eiffage, Alstom, Veolia, Egis – to go along with innumerable SME positioned on very technological niche markets that respond to crucial challenges for tomorrow. Initiated by French public authorities, Vivapolis regroups the wide range of expertise French companies have to offer to meet the needs of cities all around the world. “Simply because it is always easier to focus attention on a name everyone can recognize,” explains Caroline Olivier, Environment Project Manager at Ubifrance. More than 70 French enterprises focused on sustainable cities have risen to the challenge by joining Vivapolis. Certified know-how Demonstrations of their know-how abound: whether it’s the Grand Paris, Grand Lyon, the Euro-Mediterranean project in Marseille, the Urban Community of Bordeaux, among other initiatives. For all of these sites, there are several issues that need to be faced: mobility, managing energy, pollution… One common thread shared by all of these urban development projects involves improving the quality of life and social cohesion in these cities to make them more attractive. Several ambitious projects have been started to develop responses. One key example is the Auto-Lib system in Paris to reduce circulation in the city with non-polluting electrical cars. Bordeaux Euratlantique, an extensive construction endeavor, reveals the wide scope of action Vivopolis is capable of.   Relying especially on the development of eco-quarters, the project combines energetic efficiency, water recycling and a solar-energy plant. International markets lining up Vivapolis is ready for export. It’s already present in Morocco, where public authorities hope to benefit from French know-how to develop a new city of Chrafate in the region of Tanger-Tetouan. “They requested assistance from the French to help them carry out this ambitious project,” adds Caroline Olivier. The same thing is true for Turkey, with the youngest population in Europe. Turkish authorities expect French companies to help them integrate this youthful population more effectively in a cityscape that is constantly growing. As for China, its gigantic projects require showing up with turnkey proposals. Over the past 10 years, France has already carried out more than 200 projects in approximately fifty Chinese cities. Another highlight is the French eco-quarter that is going to be built in the Tiexi district in Shenyang. Alstom and its joint-venture, Satée, won a deal amounting to € 75 Million to provide locomotives for 550 wagons on Subway Lines 3 and 4 in Chengdu, the 5 th largest city in China. For Caroline Olivier, “Vivapolis involves a large number of French companies working on sustainable cities,” responding to key issues in urbanization for emerging countries as well as for renewal of major cosmopolitan areas worldwide. The latest scoop for Vivapolis? France is getting cutting-edge, using state of the art technologies, proposing 3D simulations for these international projects to allow deciders to visualize different possibilities for a quarter or city. These virtual scale models showcase all of Vivapolis’ partners and their specializations. It is now being tested for initiatives in Astana and Santiago in Chile.

Dansk stjernearkitekt vinder grønt kæmpeprojekt i Paris

Brigitte Marcel - 19-juin-2013 16:23:54

AF Karsten R.S. Ifversen, arkitekturredaktør. Kilde: Politiken 19. apr. 2013 Tegnestuen BIG har vundet fransk arkitektkonkurrence om at skabe EuropaCity. Den danske tegnestue BIG skal lave et grønt kæmpeskalaprojekt på 80 hektar i Paris’ udkant, EuropaCity. Det skal rumme koncertsal, kontorer, butikker, landbrug, indendørs skibakke, udendørs spa og mange flere funktioner, der vil profitere af hinandens ressourcer. BIG har foreslået at kombinere en tæt by med et åbent landskab. Det gør de ved at skære byen med smalle gader ud af en stor skive - et grønt tag med rekreative områder, vandrestier og små landbrug. EuropaCity vil blive direkte forbundet til den nye Grand Paris Express Metro til Paris’ centrum. Det urbane økosystem skal drives af biobrændsel og jordvarme og selv levere fjernvarme.
