The DREAL Grand-Est with the support of the DGALN invites you to participate within the first edition of the Biome competition. this concept competition is hospitable students in schools of architecture, urban planning, landscaping and engineering.
What is a biome?
A biome (from the Greek bios, bio = life), also called macro-ecosystem, ecozone or ecoregion, designates a group of ecosystems characteristic of a biogeographical area and named on the idea of the vegetation and animal species that predominate and are adapted thereto .
Problem of the competition :
While Covid 19 seems to possess an enduring effect on our society and our ways of cohabitation , the Biome competition invites you to imagine during a city of the Grand-Est region an architectural, urban or landscape project capable of bringing together city and nature. Faced with the worldwide problems linked to heating , the disappearance of biodiversity, conurbation and soil sealing, how can we imagine resilient urban complexes?
The Biome competition offers you the chance to bring utopia and reality into dialogue with the aim of rewarding innovative ideas capable of reconciling the town with nature.
Examples of issues :
How to reduce the consequences of warmth islands in urban areas?
How can the hearts of cities and therefore the hearts of warmth islands be renatured?
What place for biodiversity in urban spaces?
What solutions to fight against soil sealing in urban areas?
Which urban planning are often alleged to create a dialogue between nature and human activity?
DREAL Grand-Est implements the policies of the Ministry of Ecological Transition (MTE) and therefore the Ministry of Territorial Cohesion (MCT).
It is a player in sustainable development within the Grand-Est region within the areas of land use planning, transportation and mobility infrastructure, housing, energy, prevention of natural and technological risks, preservation of biodiversity, water and landscapes, preservation of resources and green growth and therefore the circular economy.
