MOUT CITY : less is more



Zone Urbaine d'Entrainement
pour les soldats de l'armée américaine,
dans le cadre du programme MOUT:
Military Operation in Urban Terrain.
Des containers empilés et des éléments en béton préfabriqués
forment les constructions.
Architecturalement cet empilement est de la plus grande qualité :
sobre, géométriquement efficace :
Less is more.





Les architectes militaires de l'armée américaine sont talentueux et le fabriquant des containers présente cette petite ville comme parfaitement écologique.






PLEASANT HILL

est selon le fabriquant de container, le plus grand camp d'entrainement militaire simulant une zone urbaine sur le territoire des USA, donc au monde, dans le cadre du programme du Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) pour le  Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC), construit à Twenty-nine Palms, California.





The MCAGCC at Twenty-nine Palms, California pioneered the combined use of concrete building construction and container-based construction to design and install the largest, sustainable and most realistic Urban Operations training site in the world- faster and more affordable than ever before. This site will be a national training asset for decades to come”.

“Combined Arms MOUT” (CAMOUT) enables training in a live and non-live fire environment resembling the theatre of operations. This provides a challenging and complex urban training environment that replicates the difficulties units will face as they communicate, coordinate, navigate, maintain situational awareness, and track urban operations. A mixture of over 1500 training facility buildings, CAMOUT supports large scale exercises. Equipped with streets, courtyard walls, religious structures, and village shanties, the MOUT environment provides a realistic depiction of the urban combat zone, setting the stage for vital and realistic mission rehearsals.“Being deployed twice, I wish we would have had training like this. Maybe more of the guys would have come back alive...” said Matt Brooks, a two tour veteran of combat in Iraq and a Project Manager with our Company.


By the numbers:
· $170 million cost
· 1,560 structures used in the training
· 274 acres of city-based training space
· 15,000 Marines, soldiers and sailors who can train at one time
· 1,866 feet of tunnels
· 38 basement hideouts
· 81 spider holes concealed throughout the complex
· 9,150 feet of courtyard walls
· 5,325 feet of chain-link fence
· 10,705 feet of simulated power lines
· 7 districts or neighborhoods throughout the city

Il est tout à fait logique, et pas incohérent, 
que le second client de ce fabriquant, 
pour des programmes de logements d'urgence
de réfugiés 
et autres victimes de guerre
