AP5 architects | Prospective Saint Nazaire 2030Identification of dynamics and Proposition of orientations

A working group was formed to reflect on the identity, socio-urban models and the position of Saint Nazaire to define objectives for 2030.

The mission makes possible the construction of a new vision for 2030, with general orientations and global changes.
