The Lyon Confluence is a multi-phase program that includes residential, office, a museum site, a new motorway, a streetcar extension, a shopping center, and a new public park on 150 hectares.
Launched in 1996 through an international competition, this 30 year plan came about from the decomissioning of industrial infrastructure.
Deemed an eco-district by the French government for a car sharing and a low energy consumption program. Designers involved in the project include Coop Himmelblau and Christian de Potzamparc.
