The notion of sustainable cities is something new, a systemic, cross-disciplinary and multi-scale approach, a subject for reflection where society’s requirements and the state of the art are evolving. It is an attitude, a position, a new approach to urban development in which there are no ready-made solutions.
Artelia assists project authorities responsible for urban and regional development by providing advice on sustainable development issues and oversees the corresponding measures in the framework of preliminary studies: Euralens, concerning the new Louvre museum in Lens, design and construction of the TCO (Territoire de la Côte Ouest) ecocity on the island of Reunion, redevelopment of the Les Halles district in central Paris, assistance with environmental and sustainable development aspects for the Pont Cardinet-Saussure development project in the Clichy-Batignolles area of Paris.
Artelia is developing many research projects on sustainable cities such as the sustainable development simulator (Santiago de Chile), static and dynamic traffic models, co-design and eco-design methods and processes, fun mobility solutions, the regional tourist economy, etc.
