Academic paper – Night-time as a strategic referent for an intermediary city


Florian Guérin , Magali de Raphélis & Sandra Mallet published the academic paper « Night-time as a strategic referent for an intermediary city: between attractiveness and
standardization of the uses » in the review European Planning Studies.

This article analyses the nocturnal dimension to the Reims Grand Centre project. It brings out a shift in approach by those involved in urban design, with an increased sensitivity to nocturnal matters. This provides a way of improving user comfort and developing new evening and night-time usages.
