Revitalising Saint-Sauveur to enable it to lead Tours to become a symbol of social engagement, resilience and collaboration.

‘Faubourg Citoyens’ is a project about creating a new centrality to rejuvenate Saint Sauveur, a special place in Tours, where it has a rich industrial history. However, it has become neglected for many years. Nonetheless, Saint Sauveur has many assets which we want to support by bringing out the district’s rich identity.

We attempt to incorporate themes of creativity, innovation, inclusivity, community and learning for everyone here at ‘Faubourg Citoyens’, through amenities like participatory housing, retailing by locals, workshops and Fablab to encourage innovation and tourism.

We have 3 key innovations. Firstly, the three towers will be the beacon of this city, bringing this anonymous city to the attention of the world, bringing in tourists. Secondly, we take a participatory approach by involving the citizens in the design process from start to finish. Thirdly, to inspire the passion for keeping the Faubourg running, it will be led and funded locals reasonably, through social policies that has been set in place.
