While waiting for the deconstruction of certain existing buildings to allow for the creation of the new "Berthelot-Zola" block, the City of Grenoble and SAGES, the developer of the Flaubert EcoQuartier, have decided to open the doors of this site to the general public by making it available for an innovative transitional occupancy project for a period of 4 years (from the beginning of 2023 to the end of 2026). Located in the north of the EcoQuartier Flaubert, between the city center and the Villeneuve de Grenoble, near the MC2 and the Bifurk, the project concerns the buildings formerly occupied by the Institut National Supérieur de Professorat et de l'Education (INSPÉ ex IUFM).
In order to coordinate this project, the City of Grenoble and SAGES have launched a public contract to appoint a coordinator-animator for the site, who will be responsible for a threefold mission of coordination, stimulation and animation. The main content of this mission consists of :
- Coordinate and support future occupations of the site by ensuring overall consistency;
- To propose specific and varied projects and activities throughout the year in the buildings and outdoor spaces, while respecting the history of the neighborhood and the environment.
pali pali will operate its first temporary occupation project in France in Grenoble. The program includes a third-party space that brings together several complementary activities in the same area: production spaces, cultural and social activities, sustainable food, etc. The occupants will be selected through a call for expressions of interest currently underway. They will be known at the beginning of 2023.
The objective of the project is to create a new convivial space in the neighborhood, thanks to its social and inclusive programming. This occupation will test and prefigure the uses of the future district and will feed the definition of the final project. It foresees an opening of the site to the public, and an involvement of the neighbors and actors of the surrounding territory in order to reveal the intensity and the identity of the district.
