On 24 March 2022, Urban Lab and WAAO, the centre for architecture and urbanism in Lille, signed a Collaboration Agreement committing the two organisations to work together over the next two years to exchange best practices, experiences and expertise, organise joint initiatives and train staff.
The theme of collaboration and exchange has been identified as “Nature in the City”, the focus of the cultural activities 2022 programme of both organisations, which work on the development of meetings, itineraries, exhibitions and many other initiatives to deepen the analysis and enrich the documentation of the relationship between nature and the city at different scales and through different skills.
Together with the signing of the collaboration agreement, WAAO’s visit was an opportunity to start exploring shared work themes and to illustrate some of the most emblematic cases in Turin from the point of view of the relationship between nature and the city, such as Beeozanam, PAV- Parco Arte Vivente, Spazio WOW, Orti Generali.
The collaboration between Urban Lab and WAAO marks a further strengthening of the bond between Turin and Lille that has existed since 1958, when the two cities signed the “Ring of Twinned Cities” twinning agreement together with Liège, Rotterdam, Esch-sur-Alzette and Cologne, representing the six founding countries of what is now the European Union.
