Vichy Val D’Allier strategy .
The Vichy Val d’Allier conurbation combines economic activities linked to well-being, relaxation and leisure, with dynamic industrial activities : cosmetics, agri-food, biomedical, electronics and engineering. The Montpertuis Palazol site was occupied from 1937 by the firm Manurhin Défense, a subsidiary of GIAT industries, specialising in the manufacture of arms and munitions. Closed in 2006, the site is currently undergoing explosives safety work which will be completed in 2015. Recovering the site is a major priority for the town’s economic development at the heart of the Clermont-Ferrand Riom Vichy metropolitan region. VVA wishes to reopen an attractive zone on the town’s left bank to the population and to introduce new uses, in an area where road access is set to improve.An industrial and economic role, with a diversity of
activitiesThe activities that may potentially be introduced are very diverse, both in their nature and type of premises.This industrial campus must be able to meet demand for premises ranging from 200 to 10,000 m². Ideas about the planning and layout of the space should offer modularity and flexibility.

Project Intro.

The ecofabrication is a process, flexible and respectful of its environment.
Its aim is to create a new type of living campus in order to organize and relate the «poles of excellence» inside a wide wooden area.
Those poles, highly connected with one another, will create an incubator enhancing synergies and communication between disciplines. The ecocampus reputation will ultimately cross the mere border of the Vichy district.

Our project for the Europan 12 Vichy Val d’Allier – Montpertuis site proposes a soft integr-
ation into the existing context respecting
the characteristics of its urban fabric
1 / 2 / From this analysis, full area (wooden area) / empty area(free field, fields, fallow) we identify fragments to be urbanized.ds, fallow) we identify fragments to be urbanized. 3 / An open area (future ecocentre) is created in the heart of each fragment. In addition, a wider area, not yet precisely defined allow the implementation of a future super-ecocentre* which purpose is to excel not only across its borders but also worldwide.
4 / 5 / Ecocentres are connected together to operate at a larger scale : eco-campus is the support of tertiary activities and services. This phenomenon describes the Eco fabrication process. 6 / Finally, the buildings, predominantly residential (non-exclusive) take place around the centers defined above….

7 / Boundaries offset 8 / Confrontation 9 / Stretchings 10 / Secondary road
11 / Implementation of the constructions

Cluster strategy
At a smaller scale, each cluster, follows specific development principles.
7 / The boundaries of the fragment are offset with different distances that allow the future implementation of a rich architectural fabric.
8 / This newly defined area is then confronted to the existing structural elements: rivers, roads, remarkable trees… It is connected to at least one main road. 9 / The ecocentres stretch outwards to connect to the neighbor fragments.This aggregate creates the EcoCampus.
obs: the whole project can be split randomly into different phases
10 / 11 / A secondary network, narrower, often one-way, is created to irrigate the fragment. It will help us define the different plots and therefore the architectural typologies. 12 / Each ecocentre will be organized as a «center of excellence» following different themes: green economy, food, cosmetics… These centers brought together will create a high level of expertise that reputation will spread beyond Vichy limits.
