This project is part of the upgrade of the Confluence area in Lyon, so named because it stands on a promontory between the Saône and Rhône rivers. It is a shopping and leisure centre, slated to be the motor of the future area.
On an area of 53,000 sqm, three levels welcome a hundred shops, including a food store - a 4,500 sqm Carrefour hypermarket, and leisure spaces (14-screen cinema multiplex, a wall of climbing 20 meters in height and jumping from 15 meters, Ludopole, fitness, restaurants ...).

Features mall architecture
The gigantic roof, which develops in soft cushion curves and is carried by slender stainless steel posts, is the federating element that structures the entire site. It is made of transparent polyethylene pouches laid in strips in slightly arched array. The strips are delicately coloured and have soft rainbow hues, day and night.
By contrast with this ethereal roof, the façades of the different volumes that house the leisure activities are sheathed in warm-toned wood, with sharp edges and clear lines. Vertical composition of elements of varying width introduces a graphic vibration throughout the commercial areas.
Elevated railways tracks cut across the centre north-south, on a viaduct structure that also affords pedestrian access, extending directly from the footbridge that crosses place Nautique.
The set of low buildings fronts the river embankment and a mooring basin, rising on a base that houses two levels of retailing activities. Play and leisure facilities – bowling alley, rollerdome, adventure park, climbing wall, kart track and multiplex cinema with 14 auditoriums – are contained in purpose - designed volumes most of which are on third level open terraces under the roof.
The traditional arrangement of shopping malls has been reinterpreted to provide links with the mooring basin.
