To answer the problems of densification of the cities, the Team Rhône-Alpes recommands Canopea, an innovating solar project of habitat integrating qualities of the individual habitat whithin a urban context.

 

Between urban density and quality of life

Canopea is a collective of small buildings, called “nanotowers”, which is inscribed within a neighborhood. Each nanotower is equipped with a system of mutualized external passageways, which offers space qualities similar to those of a detached house:

- 360° of freedom,

- the possibility of going around the house,

- a tolerable proximity of the neighborhood,

- the pleasure of shared common spaces which increase the individual space of life,

- the presence of plantations integrated in the construction taking the form of vertical farms,

- the access to public transportation and services of the area,

- the centralized management of the technical systems.

Canopea proposes a habitat which combines qualities of individual house and availability of urban services.
