Passages is an action-research project in partnership with the cities of Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Paris, Santiago, Shanghai, Toronto, Tours, Valparaiso, Paris… for the implementation of demonstration projects, academic exchanges and architectural and cultural events. In this case, the organization posted a series of questions related with the Expo 2010 site in the city of Shanghai:
"What types of passages to design in the eastern part of the Expo 2010 site?
How to generate a real, lively urban neighborhood; facilitate mobilities, from metropolitan scale to green transport?
How to connect the site to its natural and built environment using passages?"
The challenge: to identify strategic points in a developing area under construction and proposing passages of different types for construction".
