Entitled “ l’Odyssée des Cabanes ”, the project is a competition that offers urban designers, architects, planners, artists, landscapers, either individually or collectively, the opportunity to design and produce cabins, as part of the «ODYSSÉE – Euralens 2019» event, with the aim of promoting the natural spaces of the Chaîne des Parcs area, which covers the 3 agglomerations of the Pôle Métropolitain de l’Artois.
The ‘cabin’ is here conceived as a structure that gives the walker, the tourist, or the user the opportunity to appropriate the landscape, to observe nature, to play, to rest, to meet, to interact or even to experiment. It must be an attraction that encourages the discovery of the parks.
The competition aims to create at least 6 cabins that will be installed during May 2019 in emblematic sites of the Chaîne des Parcs area for a minimum of 5 months and, preferabily, until the end of 2020 (with a potential exposure during the «Lille Métropole, World Capital of Design” event in 2020). In the case of specific agreement with the designers and if allowed to, the cabins could stay on site even longer.
