... INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP
22. February 2012
Presentation document and call for applications in order to select 24 professional participants.
About Les Ateliers
 

Les Ateliers is a non-governmental organization created in 1982 by Cergy-Pontoise’s urban planners. They are an international network that gathers universities, decision makers and professionals dedicated to planning, development and urban design. The organization focuses on the practice of urban planning project management, and organizes its workshops in order to create a place for conception and creativity.

In France as well as in other countries, these workshops are an opportunity for the contractors to get an international point of view and groundbreaking propositions for their local planning issues. Given the presence of many cultures and the diversity of the education backgrounds of the participants involved in the workshops, they are a great place for high-level debates and exchange.  
 
Every year, Les Ateliers organizes three Students and Young Professionals Workshops in Irkoutsk, Porto- Novo and Cergy Pontoise, on local or metropolitan urban planning topics. Depending on the demands, Les Ateliers also organizes International Workshops for Professionals in France, Asia, the Mediterranean region, and more recently in Western Africa and South America.


ABOUT the city of study

Puebla’s historical city center is compact, ordered, and provides all kinds of services. Yet, it suffers from an important depopulation. Thanks to its public areas and exceptional monuments, the city is featuring on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List. On the other hand, the suburbs are spreading, the public spaces are structured around cars and public transports is inefficient. The urban sprawl is no longer contained and the necessary investments for its functionning are no longer provided.
     
The ecological and social consequences of these phenomenon have been acknowledge by the City’s authorities, and they are currently working to create planning tools so as to develop a long-term vision.
 
The reflection led by Les Ateliers is structured around the city center and the forsaken nearby districts, and will allow to identify some action threads on both the wider scale and the public space scale. It will also allow to propose more concrete projects and ways to implement those propositions.  


ORGANIZATION OF THE WORKSHOP

The workshop will be organized according to the orignal method of Les Ateliers. During two weeks, 24 international professionals will be divided into four teams of six participants, with two local professionals in each team. One of them is working for the technical services of the City of Puebla.   

The early days will focus on meetings and tours. During the opening ceremony, the local authorities will have the chance to express their views to the participants and their particular expectations. Then, the leading committee will announce the composition of the teams, and they will begin working on the subject - without computers. After three days, the forum will take place. It is a key moment of the workshop where the teams will present the first elements of their work, their first analysis, and will freely exchange and debate with a local comittee. During the second week, the team will finalize their productions, they will have access to computers in order to hand in their written and graphic work that will be used during their presentation to the international jury.  
 
The jury is made of local actors, actors of the city’s development, the IMPLAN, the French Embassy, AFD representatives, Puebla’s partners and members of Les Ateliers’network. Thus, it really is a fifth team. Its function is not to rank the teams but to identify within the teams’ production the most relevant propositions for the local authorities to use. The workshop is not a contest, there is neither a prize nor a market to win.

What matters is the capacity to produce analysis, new representations, and threads in a collective way that can be easily used for Puebla’s development.   

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
26TH MAY TO 9TH JUNE 2012


This workshop is for professionals of every age and nationality, and whose education and/or work is related to urban planning: architects, geographs, landscape artists, engineers, economists, artists... The goal is to create 4 multi-disciplinary teams. A good command of at least two of the following languages is required:

French, Spanish, English. We must say to the young graduates that an application with less than 3 years of experience is very unlikely to be selected.  

The participants will stay in Puebla and will work in the workspace provided for them. Documentary resources with maps and information cards introducing the context will be available.   
 
Participants are not paid but the following expenses are covered: flight+visas, single room accommodation, catering, visits and work material.   
 
The selection is made by the workshop's leading committee, based on the professional abilities of the participants, their experience on similar projects, their approach of the subject, their communication skills (language, graphics...) and their motivation!
