- The city of Suresnes wishes to study candidate proposals for the grammar school. The building or buildings should take into account the immediate environment by integrating into and by entering into a dialogue with the existing structures; designs should meet sustainable development standards, and ensure a healthy setting for users.
- The INS HEA will ensure in particular that the grammar school building(s) will be accessible to any handicapped persons (particular attention should be paid to signage and to all processes that may facilitate Accessibility).
The city of Suresnes also wants candidates to assert their interest in undertaking a process for the restoration/rehabilitation of the Open-Air School and contribute to a reflection regarding its future. You will seek to answer certain questions, among others: how can an historic monument be adapted to today’s society? Who will use these premises?
