Bocage MetropolisLloyd Broda

Geneva’s urban policy of this last decade has been strong densification, but at the cost of open spaces near and within the city, while on the French side of the border, urban sprawl has exploded to keep up with the demand. As a result, the campagne genevoise is being encircled by what one could call two avatars of the city of Geneva: the “inner” one and the “outer” one. The imminence of the situation asks for a new model of growth for Geneva: The Bocage Metropolis.
