Il s’agit d’un espace délaissé en centre-ville. Sa situation critique est liée à l’important potentiel de son emplacement pour un développement urbain à venir. La proposition paysagère intermédiaire, consiste à défragmenter un centre urbain éclaté par un ensemble de platebandes et de boisements qui introduisent certains éléments du parc, au-delà des voies et des boulevards jusqu’aux quartiers périphériques.

Extrait : Capter le réel, Jean-François Pousse, Techniques et Architecture, Art/Architecture n°399, Décembre 1991-Janvier 1992.

«Established in Brittany, Pierre Lafon, and Marion Faunières move from painting, to architecture, by way of poetry and back again. The frontiers between these three disciplines, for them, are frontiers to cross. "The object of art is to provide a response that one was not expecting. "Furthermore," architecture does not feed on itself". They thus have an almost entomologistical interest in detail, elements that could be lost, but in fact should be enlarged upon at moment of the realisation of a project. They use architecture, art and poetry to research, to express, to find. Poetry serves as seedbed for thoughts, which are then passed through the prisms of others to refined, enriched. Art serves as a palette of possibilities, a way to bypass. These first ideas do not take the form of architecture until years after their original occurrence. »
