Restoration of embankments in Rouen

Restoration of embankments in Rouen
Context & Issues

The creation of public spaces on the lower-level embankments along the left banks of the river Seine in Rouen has reconnected the city with its river and made the Seine a key component in the scheme to develop the urban area as a whole. A range of new activities have sprung up alongside the existing events held in the city (Armada tall ship gathering, 24-hour powerboat race, “Rouen on Sea” summer festival). Artelia contributed its multidisciplinary skills to see this project through to completion.
