ABY - Abbaye de Forest

A ERDF-funded project of rehabilitation of the Abbaye de Forest site as a cultural center.


The collaboration with Abbaye de Forest started at a early stage of both projects and has focused on two main sub-projects:

  • ABY has been studied during the first Metrolab masterclass " Designing Urban Inclusion in January 2017.
  • Metrolab has created a group of researchers working closely on ABY project. The main goal of the collaboration has been to produce scientific research that could contribute to a better understanding of the project and to open up discussion with the stakeholders. The main outcome of this collaboration is a series of ethnographic cartography workshops with unhabitants, users of public cultural institutions or local associations. The work was presented during an exhibition in May 2018.
