The city of Lausanne is promoting a serie of crowdsourcing sessions for the new eco-district of Pontaise-Blecherette. Last Tuesday I was in the first of them, called « Growing Up », and heard lots of interesting ideas.
First of all, people wanted a small-scale district: small roads that will help random meetings, small houses that will help people go out…exactly the opposite of modern day suburbs.
Then, another wish was for different areas for different people, but still in the same district: vibrant places for the youngest, quieter places for the elders, a common place where people of different ages could meet, some appartments specially designed for old people within the district.
Another idea was about finding a way in which people could add a personal touch to their district: some unfinished spaces, some house decoration programs…
Next meeting in two weeks (september 10, 20h00, espace Riponne – rue du Valentin 4, Lausanne).
