La Louvière City Project aims to develop a long-term vision to guide the development of the city over the next 30 years. The plan is a tool with a clear purpose but very flexible which deals with time and size scales. The reflection is nourished by a physical experience of the territory (walks), informal interviews with residents, citizen workshops, technical seminars and meetings with the city's technical services and politicians. This allowed us to sketch three images:
1. La Louvière as a Park
2. La Louvière as a space for a new urbanity
3. La Louvière as a location for the new economies of the 21st century.
