The Saint-Roch train station is a nave of light, two tramway lines (3 and 4) are designed by Christian Lacroix, the Pierresvives media library looks like a spaceship and the Antigone swimming pool like a giant liner…

And that all-white building with its suspended balconies? That’s the Arbre Blanc. The latest architectural “Folie” in the city, signed Fujimoto. Here, the Town Hall is by Jean Nouvel, the Nuage is a centre dedicated to well-being designed by Philippe Starck and the Georges Frêche professional school is the work of Massimiliano Fuksas.
