"Without a metropolitan trail, city dwellers simply cannot know their territory."

—Charlie Fox, designer of the trail ’Inspiral London’

Just like a library, a swimming pool or a music school, metropolitan trails are basic urban facilities.

Lightweight, they create a new public space to be used on a daily or occasional basis.
Sensitive, they allow inhabitants to (re)discover their territory, in all its variety and history.
Collective, they empower communities in order to imagine and implement the ecological city of tomorrow.

To meet the needs of local authorities who wish to create a trail and those of local collectives who already have a project, the Metropolitan Trails Agency can work with you on your territory.

The Agency also offers teaching activities, in Marseille and Paris, and organizes workshops in schools and universities (architecture, landscape, urbanism, art).

Founded by Baptiste Lanaspeze and Paul-Hervé Lavessière in 2014, the Agency also produces books, exhibitions, and animates the international network of metropolitan trails.
