Redevelopment of the former Jacques Cartier prison in Rennes

Manifesto is part of the group that accompanies Rennes Métropole in the reflection process around the redevelopment of the former Jacques Cartier prison in Rennes.

Rennes Métropole acquired the former Jacques Cartier men’s prison in 2021. It wants to transform this site into a hive of cultural and community activities, working together with a dynamic creative ecosystem, driven by process-based project management.

Working with Mutatis, Le Facteur Urbain and Ginkgo Avocats, Manifesto has worked with Rennes Métropole to consider the future of this prison.

With significant experience in managing complex heritage projects and cultural transitional urban planning and consulting with local stakeholders, our team was commissioned by Rennes Métropole to pave the way for this transformation.
