From the Architects:

The Mayor of Lyon presented plans for Ilot A3, the first plot to be developed within the phase 2 of La Confluence masterplan, an extensive regeneration initiative started by the Greater Lyon authority in 1998. Developed by Herzog & de Meuron in collaboration with Michel Desvigne since 2009, the Phase 2 of La Confluence is based on a phenomenological study of the city and its history. It respects the identity of Lyon, the industrial legacy of La Confluence and renews the city intrisically. As its first operational building cluster, Ilot A3 is a pilot project that aims to invent a way of living that is characteristic of the new quartier du marché. With its remarkable location, the ambition of Ilot A3 is to link different parts of the existing and future city. As part of the architectural and environmental design defined by Herzog & de Meuron, architecte en chef of the plot, a team of six local and international, emerging and established architects, was invited to design the eight buildings on the new site. Construction on the first buildings is expected to start in 2015 with the first buildings completed by the end of 2017.
