elsewhere starts here, PEROU Grigny

An Agrafmobile project for PEROU, an association for the “exploration of urban resources” that specialises in housing and employment projects for extremely vulnerable groups. For this initiative, we helped establish living quarters for Rom populations in the Essonne region, south of Paris. After their shantytown was destroyed, the Roma were confined to a no man’s (or nomads’) land, an abandoned carpark that was far from the city but did have one advantage: a programme to help residents find employment. PEROU issued a challenge to architects, landscape architects and designers: make this wasteland habitable. Using an economy of means, Agrafmobile designed and installed a series of geodetic “You are here” points spread across the asphalt of the former carpark. These black-and-white ‘suns’ plot a new landscape, together with the ‘chapel’ built by Sixième Continent to serve as a common area, proclaiming that “Elsewhere starts here” to those arriving at the site.

Maison POC

Pour l'exposition Maison POC Économie circulaire de Design is capital, Agrafmobile a réalisé cette fresque dans l'ancien Couvent des Clarisses actuellement réhabilité par l'équipe de Saisons Zéro.

Elle marque un signal pour la transformation du lieu et tisse un lien entre sa cour et le quartier. Des échanges avec les habitants ont ainsi eu lieu
