UP’ URBAN PALISSADE FOR SKY AVENUE: THE WORKSITE THAT ENGAGES WITH THE PUBLIC
The "UP’Urban Palissade" hoardings on the Sky Avenue worksite guide future users through the different dimensions and phases of this construction project. They have chiefly been designed for those living and working nearby, namely those often inconvenienced by the building work. "UP’Urban Palissade" offers integrated spaces where people can take time out of their routine to observe and understand how the construction site works.
This new concept offers a succession of combinable modules adapted to the various phases of the construction project: a viewing area, picnic area and bike lock-up.
UP’Urban/Sky Avenue is one of the stages on the Lyon City Design Forum's urban trail, which is open to the public from 19 March. The installation will remain in place throughout the duration of the worksite. It was designed and produced by Elsa Bouladoux, Jérôme Corré and Béatrice Latz (DejàDesigners collective).

"PROXIMITÉ(S)" EXHIBITION, ORGANISED BY L'OBSERVATOIRE DE LA VILLE/THE BOUYGUES IMMOBILIER CORPORATE FOUNDATION
This travelling exhibition will be presented at the Part-Dieu municipal library, as part of the Lyon City Design Urban Tour. “Proximité(s)” examines the trends and practices relating to extensions of town and city spaces, which are increasingly disconnected from the urban fabric. Proximity and continuity are becoming key factors for making towns and cities more liveable and better in tune with the expectations of their inhabitants. The three embryonic areas of research conducted by l'Observatoire de la Ville (shops and services; distance, time and accessibility; and digital culture) contain a broad diversity of approaches to urban services and their users. Using films and photos, the exhibition presents new definitions of urban proximity and the actions that can be taken to develop it.
The exhibition is free and can be viewed during the library’s usual opening hours.
