Aurore Huberty – Latency
Diploma project by Aurore Huberty
Latency is a publication that traces the history of Chavalon, a thermal power station located in Vouvry, and abandoned since 1999. This research provides an overview of the rehabilitation situation of unused industrial wastelands. The aim is to allow future reuse of land and to correct local urbanism in order to achieve sustainable territorial development. A typomorphological analysis reveals the problems of urban sprawl and the destruction of green areas which has reached its limits in Switzerland. The objective of this work is to use both graphic design and allegorical language as discussion tools to raise awareness and invite people to question our relationship with these spaces.
