THE FORMER COKING PLANT IN DROCOURT AND LE PARC DES ILES

At the centre of the project was a sterile site surrounded by three slag heaps, and a mine that was still operating at the time of the call for tenders: 150 hectares of interstices between three mining communities. Today, the area has become a stunning park of “islands”, incorporating the existing natural components of the land.
