Project Description

The regeneration of large-scale social housing estates through living labs

This research project starts from the observation that interrelated social and spatial
problems in large-scale social estates are generally tackled independently from
one another. The overall aim of this project is to develop an integrated approach
towards the renovation of the public and collective spaces of such estates.
These approaches will be developed, tested and refined via an evaluation of existing
projects in Paris, of an ongoing living lab experience in Milan and in new living lab
projects in Brussels and Paris. In these labs we examine how social tenants can be
effectively involved in renovation processes, but also how such involvement can be
aligned with top-down planning processes.
