CHRISTIAN D.

The Caen peninsula. Conquering new neighbourhoods (on foot or by bike).

   After the descent of the avenue of June 6, which marks the post-war reconstruction plan of the islet saint Jean with its six emblematic Marine Tours, the route is oriented along the Orne towards the peninsula and its first major equipment. The circuit continues on Quai François Mitterrand in front of the Library and then on the canal bank, passing the Grand Pelouse and the High Court to reach the Petit Quai de Normandie and the New Basin, which will soon open to urbanization. The return is made by the Victor Hugo Canal and the visual perspectives on the abbey to the ladies, then by the Quai Vendeuvre and the Saint Pierre basin, marking the anchoring of this new district on the historic city centre. The whole is in the range of 5 to 6 km. President of the association Insitu, Christian helps organize the biennial of architecture in Caen. He enjoys urban planning, architecture and the city’s living environment.
