Design of the Séminaire square as part of a participatory project with the inhabitants of the St. Michel neighbourhood. The project proposes a floor plan in concrete and stone representing the map of the neighbourhood. A green band, the only touch of colour, suggests the possible opening of the Ramparts garden, an exceptional green space that is not accessible. A red circular bench with the inscription “you are here” locates the square on the plan.
This commission from the city of Bordeaux is a continuation of the project Atelier d’urbanisme utopique (“Utopian Urbanism Workshop”) carried out in 2008, the Séminaire square being one of the potential project sites.
