Hypothesis of regeneration by 'anticipation' in the cities of Ouagadougou and Lomé
Keywords:‘anticipation’, ecosystem, edification, territory, transformation
The studies carried out within the Master’s programme Aedification – Grands Territoires – Villes of the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Grenoble for the cities of Ouagadougou and Lomé, each in their own way, question the dynamic processes of the architecture project as vectors of transformations in relation to space and time. To do this, these processes call for ‘‘anticipation’’ to foresee the future of one of the largest informal districts in the city of Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso and a former wasteland in the city of Lomé in Togo by progressively proposing new spatial qualities to these urban sites, that are often considered only negatively by the institutions. Taking into account their specific environment and starting from a multi-scalar vision in time and space, these two hypotheses of projects are intended to be innovative in their way of considering the future, for which the temporal framework of thought must be of at least fifteen years.
