MdP is the first C2C (Cradle to Cradle) building in France. A regenerator of a former factory, it is an economic, cultural and environmental activator. The MdP (House of the Project) hosts meetings, exhibitions, calls for tender, as needed to reactivate the 1.000 Ha area into the circular economy. It is also improving soil and air conditions, eating up the chemicals left over from former industrial activity. There were no earthworks, using driven piles that may be recovered; the structure and facades are designed for disassembly and reuse; materials are biodegradable or recyclable, with zero harmful chemicals; sanitation generates nutrients, with the chimneys of three dry toilets as a main feature of the facade; landscaping cleans the soil; the building feeds on clean energies, with controlled solar exposure and the principle of the thermal onion; technology reuse is easy, the designers call it 'superfurniture': mobile equipment units to provide a specific function to any space.
