Right next to the Luxembourg border. A forgotten past. In all minds. Micheville, as “ville”, is a former steal plant. It is also the heart of a city. But the heart disappeared. Shut
and torn down. Only the underground slabs and the polluted soil can remind us the presence of this former industrial beast.
This ambitious 80Ha urban project tackles the issues of urban memory and of rejuvenation.
Or how to make a new heart beat through a transformed body.
