This durable signage will typify the Carré Bleu (Blue Square) and the cross-border context. The intervention should be eye-catching, but may take any form: for instance a sculpture route, a line of trees, a digital concept, a soundscape ... This project is a proof of concept (POC) within the scope of Lille World Design Capital (Lille WDC2020). This should enable the Carré Bleu (Blue Square) to reach an international audience.
