The third pilot site L'Argentière-la-Bessée is the industry area in the French Alps. The construction of hydroelectric plant in the last century attracted large factories along the low land of Durance river. With the end of industrial golden age (1950-1970), the Pechney area became shattered and disordered gradually and lost its status as main economic driving force. The village with industrial complex tries to find the solution through Alps tourism, beautiful nature, and Durance river. It is strongly believed that the Pechney site could become the booster of economy again through the strong cooperation among several actors. Here are presented two of four TUM students’ transformation scenarios.
