    City +Neighborhood facilities, City facilities. Lyon, FRANCEdepartment: Advanced Strategies and Architectural PracticeDiploma Project , 2011

    The manufacture of todays city is not able to meet the aspirations and the increasing complexity of our urban societiesbecause of the rational control (= timelessness) and planning (which reduces to a simple execution such as architectural

    scale). The urban landscape is determined by regulations (PLU, alignments, templates ...) that create a discontinuity anddestruction of urban form.

    The city is conceived more in space than in time. This dimension of time is important and should be developed at a timewhen abstract planning shows its limits. If there are scales in time and in space, there must also temporal forms that canbecome innovative urban forms.

    We must learn to think transformable. Urbanists, architects and building owners should challenge the model programs,deprogram dare, think in terms of giving space and opportunity for conversions. The notion of reversibility must nd itsplace: imagine works that change of destination, that transform. On the scale of the architecture, thinking capital tempss equivalent to acquiring a new moral of construction.

    On the one hand the thought of lasting, on the other the thought of becoming..

    n order to attain a project that operates on space through time, it is necessary to introduce programmatic micro-strategieson spaces that hold the most potential, in order to preserve the remaining ones for future uses, presently unknown.

    Adaptability is a different way of exibility. The building is both adaptable and multifunctional, cross-functional and must allow thepossibility of changing its use. Identity and an apparent long-term presence in the urban context is necessary to meet futureneeds and changing conditions.
