Côté Jardins - Birth of a Neighborhood - Naissance d'Un Quartier: Bauart #3

(English / French)
Countering the phenomenon of sprawl in the often anonymous or chaotic urban periphery, the Oassis neighborhood in Lausanne takes a unique approach based on urbanity and hybridization. Located on a former industrial wasteland in the west of the city, Oassis reflects the compositional principles of the traditional city, while also engaging in the dynamics of ecological transition and climate resilience. This 'urban fragment' is both an urban fabric, compatible with future developments in the neighborhood, and an architectural object characterized by urbanity. The contemporary challenges of regenerating suburban areas are addressed here through diverse development programs and a profusion of gardens.

  • Skilful combination of economic, ecological and social factors with high-quality architecture
  • With unpublished documents and specially commissioned photographs
  • Follow-up to the volume Ecoparc Quarter by Bauart Architects
