Le fait urbain et les villes en reconstruction
Project funded by European Union by the program Creative Europe, carried out since 2021 (until 2027) is led by prof. Helena Zemánková
The project brings together three European universities (UBO in France, TUD in Germany and VUT in the Czech Republic) and a Franco-German citizens' association (MDA in Brest) to explore the issue of reconstruction in the broadest sense. The project takes as its starting point the comparison of two cities - Brest and Dresden - which suffered the same fate of destruction at the end of the Second World War, and which tackled the challenges of their reconstruction in very different ways. With an innovative transdisciplinary approach, the project explores not only the architecture and urban planning of the two cities, but also the art and the role imagination plays in the (re)construction of the cities' identities.
