The Lyon Part-Dieu project transforms the original shopping centre from the 1970s, “re-socialising” the massive building and transforming Lyon’s city centre. While sustainably reusing a significant amount of the existing building’s materials, the design rearranges internal programmes, adds more space, replaces a redundant car park, inserts large windows, refreshes the characteristic old concrete façade, and adds an expansive rooftop park connected to the city by monumental stairs. With this extensive transformation, a building that was once an obstruction to Lyon’s vitality begins a new chapter as a vibrant city centre attraction.
