La faille encadrée

Marion vercueil

In the shadow of the very dense urban fabric of current cities, empty spaces, micro faults, places of new opportunities, but for the moment under-exploited, are nevertheless present. Passages, urban corridors, voids, or other public spaces, urban faults mark a discontinuity in the urban alignment and reflect a slower evolution in terms of occupation and use. They remain nonetheless places of exchanges and meetings with a singular morphology.
My research focuses on the exploitation of the telluric characteristics of these faults, the wealth of roughness, and to what extent this could be transcripted into one or more urban faults. These attributes specific to these places represent many possible postures to adopt when facing their reappropriation and exploitation. By defining these attributes, I was able to locate three precise urban faults in the Croix Rousse district.
Framed faults aims at creating a module that can highlight existing uses of each urban fault and that can also help the inhabitants to become the actors of their well-being within their place of residence.
