Lyon Part-Dieu: an ambitious project to reinvent the centre of the Lyon metropolis
For 40 years, Part-Dieu has had a central strategic role in the metropolis as a driving influence in Europe and abroad. Lyon metropolis has instigated an ambitious project to reinforce this momentum and to make this district a permanently attractive area where it is also pleasant to live.
Offering new potential to an existing site
Lyon Part-Dieu was created as a symbolic business district in the 1970s.
Today, in addition to its reinvention to make it the leading business district in France, after La Défense in Paris, this is where we intend to produce and experiment the smart and environment-friendly city of the future.
The ambition is to invent a new way of experiencing the city, rather than a new city. It must be lively, simple and intuitive; greener and more open.
