Menighetti Programmation with AREP has been involved in the elaboration of Bahrain’s regional development strategy by conceiving “urban guidelines” as part of the Bahrain French Town Planning Initiative. The goal of this initiative is to provide Bahrain with sustainable development tools in order to assist the Kingdom in meeting social, environmental and economic challenges.
Centred around collaborative work, Menighetti and AREP's thoroughgoing and innovative approach is based on design thinking. It puts forward appropriate tools, previously tested in workshops, that have been designed to guide project initiators, and to help local town planning services to supervise the various development projects. In July, Menighetti Programmation and AREP's Town Planning department, presented a programming methodology and worked hand in hand on the tools that need to be implemented. These workshops will run until September 2017.
Workshops organised by Bruno Reboul (Menighetti Programmation), Christophe Chevallier, Charles Antoine Depardon, Agnès de Rodellec, Adrien Thomas et Gaëlle Renoncet (AREP's Town Planning department).
