On May 15th-18th, the students from the TUM-Chair of Landscape Architecture and Industrial Landscapes, accompanied by Prof. Udo Weilacher, Marcello Modica and Martin Augenstein, visited the former Pechiney aluminium works in L'Argentière-la-Bessée (Briançon, Hautes-Alpes), the French pilot site of trAILs. An intensive on-site analysis allowed the students to draft some first transformation concepts for the area. These have been presented, shared and discussed with local project partners (Thomas Kleitz and Claire Baradez from CAUE 84) and regional stakeholders (CAUE 05, Communauté de communes Pays des Ecrins, municipalities of L'Argentière and La-Roche-de-Rame). The team also get the chance to visit another key brownfield site of the region, the disused MG Industries calcium factory in La-Roche-de-Rame. The final design projects for the Pechiney site will be integrated in the test-design workshop, foreseen for February 2020.
