The demonstration EcoCampus enters design phase
A layout design project, with initial work commencing in summer 2012.
Launched in January 2011 as part of the Lyon Cité Campus project, the study process concerning the redesign of the LyonTech La Doua campus as an "Ecocampus" was completed last summer with the drafting a detailed works programme. The new campus will fulfil a dual role: educational demonstration and support for research.
With this in mind, the urban planning agency Dumetier Design, working with the landscaping specialist APS and several design offices, has been appointed to draw up a layout project, with initial work on the first phase to commence in summer 2012.
At the same time, the designer is also responsible for updating the master plan established end 2009, by integrating all new data regarding the construction of the scientific areas.
Students and staff: provide your input!
Following the general presentations on 30 May, 30 June and 24 November 2011, thematic workshops are scheduled to further develop ideas and gather input from the field. An initial workshop on travel issues (traffic, parking, modes of transport) was organised on 11 December 2011.
