Today more than 4 billion people live in cities. Space is lacking, air is missing, waste is accumulating, poverty is rising, crime is increasing, climate is changing. We are reaching a tipping point, change is needed. But all of this we already knew. Instead of feeling guilty about it let’s think positive, let’s focus on solutions. Cites are places of innovation and all over the world people are working very hard on solving these challenges.
“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.” Jane Jacobs
Challenges are the same everywhere
Poverty, housing, security, water, waste,etc. these challenges are not specific to one country, they are present all over the world.
Your problem is my problem
Our world is globalized. What happens on the other side of the planet can have an impact on us. We are all dependent and responsible for each other.

My friends talk about me
Frederic is a very curious person and is always thirsty for new adventures. He is very sociable and adapts very easily to situations and is not afraid to leave his comfort zone to learn new things. During our year in Seoul and our trip to Indonesia, Frederic was a real leader: full of energy and resources, he has the flair to find exceptional places off the beaten track.
Adventurous by nature, passionate about urbanism and architecture, Frédéric is a sensitive person in his working approach with a real capacity of adaptation. He shows creativity while conducting his projects constructively and thoughtfully. Extraverted, he draws his energy and his inspirations from the people he meets, which is a real human asset.
