choice of territorial "mooring" points and the design of the experiences to which it is offered.

3: Blondeau Enclave Develop the intervention criteria of this island enclave as a “core-station piece” to link the recreation areas, the house, the training pavilions, the health and police center and the School No. 28; and project the dock / mooring infrastructure and the spaces for the construction, workshop and storage of the projected components for the different uses demanded by educational establishments.
