Masterplan for urban development in Bordeaux won by OMA

Dutch practice OMA has been announced as the winner of an international competition run by La Fabrique Metropolitaine de la Communaute Urbaine de Bordeaux to develop a new urban strategy for the southern district of Bordeaux, France.

The scheme will develop new connections between the city’s central station and the regions of Begles and Villenave d’Ornon, and expand the local tram network. The tender was publicised by WAN’s Business Information Service in March 2012.
