In Nantes, as part of the URBiNAT regeneration project, the students from the Master in Advanced Architecture during the Data Informed Structures Seminar co-design alongside with local citizens structures based on Nature Based Solutions (NBS) that will be installed in Nantes in 2023.
This year the Master in Advanced Architecture’s Data Informed Structures Seminar has been organised within the framework of the URBiNAT H2020 project. URBiNAT aims to regenerate deprived urban areas with healthy corridors, implemented through Nature Based Solutions (NBS) co-created with citizens. IAAC’s students worked alongside local citizens in Nantes to co-design structures through a series of workshops, exploring different structural typologies and solutions. The workshops with the citizens of Nantes aimed at gathering feedback and receiving their input regarding the design proposals. With their feedback in mind, a lightweight strategy was selected and IAAC’s students continued to develop it into a series of prototypes.
