Transform without changing anything, or almost …
To transform is to restore the space of the Place de l’Île de Beauté in Nice. The enhancement of the landscaped and built environment reveals multiple potentialities and new uses, to the benefit of the quality of daily life of Nice residents and visitors. This “revelation” is in line with the prospect of recognition by Unesco of the remarkable character of the place.
In line with the geography of the site and built around the existing heritage, the project offers a refined composition around the Church of Notre-Dame-du-Port and the arcades on both sides.
The work of the soil seeks to allow strolling, in opposition to the current ambient chaos with a search for sobriety through a development concerned with sustainability.
In continuation of the dynamics of requalifications of Old Nice, the project proposes by its treatment to connect the “Place de mer” (Place Ile de Beauté) and the “place de Terre” (Place Garibaldi).
The reorganization of light vehicle flows and traffic allows the pedestrianization of the Port district to begin. The square and the quays extend to the facades of rue Fodéré with a public space designed by the landscape.
The soil treatment unit facilitates access to existing and recently delivered public transport (T2) to enlarge the square, a multimodal exchange area with a belvedere on the Mediterranean.
The project restores the scale and unity of Place Ile de Beauté in Nice.

Work on the forecourt of La Rochelle station has started:
1st stage of the Multimodal Exchange Hub project, which will welcome travelers by 2022.
Between the historic center and the ZNIEFF des Marais de Tasdon, the PEM covers 4.5 hectares of land, on either side of the station. Offering pedestrians a comfortable and cleared square of nearly 11,700m², the project develops a territorial vision that reinforces the green and blue fabric, gives back all its place and enhances the native flora. In total, nearly 1 hectare of planted spaces and 260 trees will support soft mobility between the station forecourt and the new bus hub. The link between city and nature is made possible by the construction of a footbridge over the railway tracks, designed by Marc Mimram. The creation of public spaces highlights the passenger building designed by Pierre Esquié, considered one of the most beautiful stations in France.
With Marc Mimram (gateway project manager), A2i (BET VRD), Flore Siesling (lighting designer), FC Urban Designer (fountain), Roland Ribi & Associés (mobility engineering), Cronos Conseil (BET safety and security) .
In Neuilly-sur-Marne, work on public spaces for the 1st phase of the Maison Blanche Park is continuing, supporting the delivery of buildings and the arrival of the first inhabitants.
Following the lighting project designed with Marc Aurel and Flore Siesling, the lighting equipment is gradually being deployed in the streets. The different models and the presence of accessories (lampshades in particular) characterize the public spaces of the eco-district, depending on their location in the former hospital compound, which is largely wooded.
303 arts research creations, magazine of Pays de la Loire, publishes its special issue 2020 devoted to the curiosities of the region.
While travel is disrupted, a great way to (re) discover places, buildings, women and men who built our territories.
In this issue 161, Sevak Sarkissian presents the work of the mosaic artist Isidore Odorico in the region, notably the Blue House and the Anjou hotel in Angers.

Ateliers Lion associés was selected to carry out the restructuring of the Palais des Congrès de Nantes. The agency built the Cité des Congrès between 1986 and 1992. The restructuring involves the transformation of building D to make it a café and a coworking space. The project proposes to find a new relationship with public space, the uses of which have evolved since the initial construction of the Cité des Congrès. This transformation, which is being carried out in parallel with the extension of the Cité, demonstrates the potential of architectures to transform themselves to adapt to new uses when their structure allows it and highlights this problem of the permanence / obsolescence couple.
With ECB (construction economics), AREST (structural engineering), SoLab, ex alBdo (fluid engineering, SSI, acoustics) and E2CT (OPC).
Along the Seine and Boulevard du Général Jean Simon, the first two buildings 50 meters away are finished. Comprising family housing, shops on the ground floor and ground floor, activities on R + 1 and early childhood equipment, these programs were designed by Tania Concko for Paris Habitat and by Ameller Dubois for Linkcity and the RIVP. They foreshadow the transformation underway in Bruneseau Nord: erase the break between Paris and Ivry-sur-Seine, by reconciling infrastructure, public spaces and architecture.
In Clermont-Ferrand, in the former wheat market, work has started on removing the partitions and floors. The first volumes reappear, discovering the vaults and the omnipresence of local volcanic stone (Volvic stone). The transformation of the building to house the FRAC collections will begin in April. Opening scheduled for 2021.

Nearly 800 of the 1 200 housing units of the first phase are currently under construction. Work on the finalization of public spaces in this part of the new eco-neighborhood is starting this summer, to prepare for the arrival of the first inhabitants, in the first half of 2020.
Laying of the “1st brick” on July 11, in the presence of all project partners.

Boulevard Euromediterranée, Marseille’s new waterfront
Architect : Ateliers Lion – Ilex – Kern et Associés
Developer : Euromediterranée
The Euromed’s film shows the progress in the working areas that have been built in Marseille.
The restructuring plan of the former department store of Poitiers begins with the partial demolition of the building: the elimination of blank facades, demolition of the fourth floor, chopping down of interior partitions.
The general structure of the existing building is preserved in order to house the programs of the project (shops at the ground and first floors, accommodations in the upper floors).
Delivery scheduled for late 2015.
In the presence of Manuel Aeschlimann, mayor of Asnieres-sur-Seine; Josiane Fischer, Deputy Mayor delegated to planning and major projects; Jean-Luc Poidevin, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Urban Turnkey CEO of Villes & Projets; Yann Doublier , CEO of Nexity- Apollonia and Nexity- Seeri; Yves Lion and Claire Piguet, urban architects.
As part of Boulevard du Littoral construction site, Vaudoyer Park offers new playground and relaxation area to Marseille’s unhabitants. Joining the lower and the upper town, this development includes several sanitary facilities networks.
This place of shade and coolness is the real entrance of the Panier district; this garden is a belvedere on the landscape and the Port de la Méditerranée.
The public garden offers a children’s playground surrounded by the vegetation (stem-trees and shrubby beds implantation), and a set of benches facing the open landscape and the interior of the garden.
Professional basejumper and wingsuit pilot Cedric Dumont jumped from the UP-site tower, Quai de Willebroeck, Brussels. Located along the canal, the 42-floors tower is 140 meters high, making it the tallest residential tower in Belgium.
The footbridge leading to the sports fields of École nationale des ponts et chaussées in Marne-la-Vallée was delivered in June.
Along the Vergote Pond in Brussels, works on the UP-Site housing complex are ending. With 42 floors (140 meters), this project includes the tallest residential tower in Belgium (250 apartments). Around a shared interior block garden, the operation also includes building-villas overlooking the Péniches Quay (Quai des Péniches) and an office complex on the Willebroek Boulevard. Symbolic in the Brussels skyline, the UP-site project contributes to the renewal of the canal district.
In the Eastern part of Paris Rive Gauche joint development zone, the operational status of public spaces and buildings sites is accelerating, gradually bringing Paris and Ivry-sur-Seine closer:
