Lyon 7 .. A new team around the architect Corinne Vezzoni for the Gerland project

Now, and after a consultation launched in 2020, the agency of the architect Corinne Vezzoni will carry out the missions of the consulting architects of Gerland, an agency that is returning to Lyon, having already received the design and the approval of the production of the Rhône departmental archive.

At his side is a Lyon-based agency, Insolites Architectures, which will be responsible for coordinating the group in its various missions, but also the landscapers and urban planners from the Ilex agency, chosen to reflect on the landscape aspect of the urban project. Based in Lyon, we owe them in particular the Vallon Park in La Duchère, the banks of the Jonage Canal and the coproduction of the guide for the Antiquaille district (5th Lyon).

A new direction for the project?

This team will be responsible for “enriching and stabilizing the content of the urban project in all its dimensions” and “continuing to monitor its implementation”. It also consists of Tribu, a design firm considered “one of the pioneers in green building and territorial design” by Transitec, an independent mobility and transportation consultancy, and finally by Fonceo Citeliance. Land and real estate advice.

This name, which coincides with the arrival of the newly elected environmentalists, should undoubtedly give a new direction to the urban project led by the Gerland Mission. Project in which we can observe in particular the planning process along Avenue Jean-Jaurès as part of the Girondins Concerted Development Zone. It also ends the mission previously carried out by the A / S Marguerit workshop teams.
