CITY CITÉ CIUDAD was born as a product of PhD research work at the Université de Paris and the Université d’Orléans.
Our mission: to help urban actors (townships, associations, urban developers, design agencies, etc.) make public spaces safe, inclusive, and humane.
At CITY CITÉ CIUDAD, making public spaces safe is much more than installing security cameras everywhere. It is about recognizing the needs of the most vulnerable and creating dignified spaces to improve social cohesion. Our approach takes into account the needs of vulnerable populations in
particular, such as women, children, the elderly, etc.
Users of public spaces are at the heart of our projects. Our activities integrate users’ input at different stages through participatory processes.
CITY CITÉ CIUDAD has received recognition for our innovative approaches, such as the PÉPITE Ile de France Award and the Fondation Palladio Award. Our work has also been shared worldwide by the Fondazione Feltrinelli, the Journal for Public Spaces, Oxford Urbanists, and Reflexions Immobilières.
