Multiple Places

By « multiple places » we intend places where different functions are mixed: social centres in markets, university labs in popular neighbourhoods, coworking space in public administration entrance hall, citizens cafe within research centres, open areas to collaborate with clients in private companies, and the whole range of emerging places integrating multiple functions and remixing the classical categories of urban fabric.
In the Lille Métropole area as in many cities, such « multiple places » are booming in variety and in quantities.
DxCC Lille 2020 co-organized by Lille Metropole 2020, World Design Capital and DESIS network will host face-to-face and remote conversations to discuss the territory’s experiments with others developed by the DESIS labs in Milan and Barcelona along the follow questions:
§ What are the implications of Multiple Places on [post-pandemic] citizens’ lifestyles?
§ What are the implications of Multiple Places on [post-pandemic] services and infrastructure?
§ What are the implications of Multiple Places on the whole city and its [post- pandemic] governance?
