This description of Nicolas Detrie's work was prepared when Nicolas Detrie was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2018.
Introduction
To face a heavy trend of social and spatial fragmentation in urban areas, Nicolas Détrie is inserting new room for experimentation within cities. He does so by temporarily occupying vacant buildings and outdoor spaces to test lively urban prototypes that both mix social groups and capacitate citizens to develop new social, cultural or economic initiatives.
