Summary :

The Popular Urbanism Workshop (APU) was created by residents in Villeneuve, Grenoble, to develop a collective alternative to the demolition of social housing and the urban transformation being imposed on their neighbourhood, and to support alternative proposals – proposals that have since influenced urban renewal in the town, and prevented some demolitions.
