Caen Peninsula Redevelopment
MVRDV 


In order to improve the connection between the historical center and the seafront of the French city of Caen, the 550-hectare masterplan will redevelop the peninsula and the neighboring towns of Mondeville and Hérouville, located by the Orne River. 

The ‘Great Mosaic’ consists of a number of small interventions on existing stuctures: the transformation of former factories into gardens, a highly connected mobility plan, the reconstruction of the city center and a series of new pedestrian bridges.
