HOUSING IN TRANSITION
Both point of departure and point of arrival, Le Havre never really ends with the " re", prefix of the reiteration as of the return, and suffix of a city which reveals itself in the mirror of great political movements, ideal destination to study the multiplicity of transitions that cities face, and housing with them. Reinventing itself is indeed the destiny of Le Havre. So, from avant-garde to heritage, what transition(s)?
This study trip by the Institut des Hautes Etudes pour l’Action dans le Logement, organized by AHA, is designed as an investigation into strategies for transforming le Havre's cultural, industrial and construction heritage.
