Aurovillian architects were the main participants. At the morning presentation, which was held in the town hall's conference room, Pierre Legrand, an artist and member of L'Avenir d'Auroville, presented his grid concept grid concept presentation. Some participants at the workshop stated that if the city was designed spirally it would be quite helpful. Cristo, another member of L'Avenir d'Auroville and the Green Group, appreciated the grid proposal. Information and outputs of this workshop will be presented to the community in the coming weeks.
