the planned jeuneville gives a vertical dimension to development of the city and responds to the problem urban sprawl. the project presents an overlay of urbanism that encourages a diverse mixture of uses. dictated by simple and radical principles, each urban stratum is able to host programs that evolve as needed. the structure is thus capable to easily absorb mutations of the city and its uses, allowing absolute durability.
