I am an urban architect by training. Before founding DVTup in 2015, I practiced architecture for 10 years. DVTup is the result of a professional approach which seeks the link between users and space by highlighting the power of citizens action on his living environment rather than the architectural forms. We are convinced that common spaces are structuring in the development of rich and resilient social relationships. This is why we do everything possible to support users and professionals of the city's factory to collaborate, to develop and animate living urban spaces.
DVTup has been working in the French context for 5 years. We support both public actors (social landlords, municipalities, developers) as well as private actors (land developers, companies from various sectors). We support them on subjects ranging from the definition of a participation strategy on new neighborhood projects, to the involvement of local communities in renovation and construction projects for new public and common spaces.
We have tools and a method adapted to field work allowing the emergence of co-constructed and living projects. We support local actors towards independence and create the conditions for continuity after our departure.
5 years ago, at the same time that we founded DVTup, we started to support a local community in a project to reclaim an abandoned common space in the frontage of a social housing residence in a city bordering Paris. For 3 years, we supported the inhabitants, the users, the city, the social landlord and the associations of the territory to imagine the future of this place and to transform it gradually by proposing projects of improvement and animation of the space. We thus emerged 3 artistic projects, a vegetable garden, multiple events of conviviality. For 2 years now, we have left the place and left it in the hands of two associations of the territory and the inhabitants who continue to support and transform this place.
