On which project are you currently working on?

We are currently working with cities as Bordeaux, organizing training programs in Copenhagen for their urban designers; Strasbourg, developing their new Bicycle Plan; Amsterdam, performing analysis of cyclists’ behavior to redesign intersections; Montréal, improving cycling infrastructure network between the historical and the new campus. We also work with Brussels Mobility, producing a communication tool kit to promote cycling as an attractive means of transportation.  

What do you like to do when you are not working?

We love spending time in Brussels streets. Even after several years living here, there are always hidden spots to discover. We specially like going to Sunday markets and tasting nice street food. As for the hobbies, Ana has a run or a swim in the morning as much as possible, Cécile dances salsa and practices aerial silks and Clotilde likes discovering new places to photograph.  

Song you would like to make us discover?

Kokomo by Lilly Wood and the Prick, original song from the Beach Boys). We all have our own “Kokomo” somewhere.  

A quote, a poem, an advice, which follows you everywhere?

“Vuelen mis hijas” is the name of a song Ana’s father wrote for her sister and her. It means “fly my daughters” and well, it speaks for itself. The feeling of support from parents is something that children should keep with them wherever they go, and push them to follow their goals.  

How do you feel at Le Phare?

For us, Le Phare is essentially a place with good vibes, where you are welcomed with a smile and small gestures that make your working day pleasant. Besides, even if we are focus on our work, there is always a moment for sharing with other sailors, which is stimulating and fun.
