We Compare cities with an exquisite corpse. As the surreal drawing, it is built from different points of views through time, across cultures and individual imaginary conjugated on a single sheet of paper. In this fragmented and shared space, we invent different modes of meeting and reunion, the interfaces in this universe. The exquisite city is a city that feeds on the interaction between its various fragments and components. We also believe that an urban project needs to take into account certain scales, these psychic and imaginary components of the territory to meet the needs of the banal life of an inhabitant.
