The competition is centered around different scales of questionings :
- the issues raised by the rebuilding of the factory, the water works, the landscape and the entire area of Villeneuvette and eventually its relationship with neighboring towns.
- an investigation regarding what could be learned from the design of Villeneuvette, its organization, its density its urban-rural quality, and the well-being which results from it.
- Villeneuvette as an inspiration of urban forms and thinking patterns which can help the surrounding towns, in terms of urban design, in their attempts to face their rapid expansion ; (such as Mourèze, Cabrières, Nébian, Clermont l’Hérault whose populations vary from 400 to a maximum of 8000, and are a part of what is referred to as the “coeur d’Hérault’ (the heart of the Hérault county).
