Last week, the students were able to experience a unique view on urban planning in the city of Grenoble. The workshop was held at the Institut D’Urbanisime et de Géographie Alpine. The students were tasked on the first day with coming up with a narrative or dialouge with a group that expounded upon the issues that were prevalent in the city. The next day the students, within their group, planned their journey along a “transect line”, they were assigned, in the area or surrounding areas.
The city of Grenoble is surrounded by massive mountains. It was a very different view for our LSU students.
After meeting with their groups, the students create a narrative, or a dialogue, to explain the problems that need to be addressed with this urban planning workshop. Some of the problems were climate change, accessibility to food, hospitality, and more.
One of LSU students (pictured above) with her group, read their narratives aloud to the rest of the students.
The following day, the students gather into classrooms and plan out their trek, with their groups, for the next day. Each group was tasked with choosing a different journey that was shown on a map by a line.
Planning the trek was no easy task. The students plan where to stop to ask questions, what needed to be photographed, and how they were going to get to their destinations.
