Paul Lecroart believes that transformative projects drive cities to rethink their development models. Converting urban highway barriers into well connected, multi-use and green boulevards is a strong driver to both change of mobility behaviour and sustainable urban intensification. As a Senior Urbanist at the Paris Metropolitan Region Planning Agency (L’Institut Paris Region), Paul’s strategic expertise has played a leading role in the successful Paris River Banks Expressway Pedestrianisation, as well as in other major regional projects.
An adviser for many cities worldwide, Paul shows that bringing international experience into local contexts can be a real game changer for the future of metropolitan regions.
