STATION MUE

WELCOME TO LA STATION MUE

A unique space for discovery and sharing in the Lyon metropolitan area, La Station Mue prefigures the transformation of the Le Champ neighbourhood in La Confluence. Objective: to turn a former disused industrial site into an inhabited forest, with the involvement of the future users.

La Station Mue: events and participation in La Confluence (Lyon)

UNDERSTANDING THE INNOVATIONS OF A MORE SUSTAINABLE CITY

At the centre of Le Champ, La Station Mue, a project supervised by Lyon Confluence, is a symbol of the site’s transformation into a vast wooded area. The wood structure of this unusual installation covers 750 sq. metres, in the southern part of La Confluence. It showcases the neighbourhood designers’ commitment to creating a sustainable city.

If you’re curious, you’ll find the answers to your questions about the experiments conducted in the area.  

  • How can you make the soil fertile again?
  • How do you use 100% recycled concrete?
  • What is the role of the insects?

A COLLABORATIVE SPACE, FOR MORE SOCIAL INNOVATION

An open-air laboratory for urban creation, La Station Mue also contributes to social innovation by encouraging everyone to make this experimental space their own; a project in which everyone can participate:

  • debates about how cities should be
  • festive events
  • creative workshops
  • expression wall where ideas can be shared
  • urban walks
  • concerts
  • and more 

A wide mix of events are offered and changed often by the partner associations.

LOCAL STAKEHOLDERS, JOINING IN

In 2018, La Station Mue hosted the Kiosk Festival, featuring music, dance and workshops, sponsored by Lyon Confluence. This space was designed to be used by various neighbourhood participants. The objective is to organise opportunities for people to meet, talk and share. MJC Presqu’île Confluence used it for Music Day 2019. The venue was also used for the Nuits Sonores music festival. Come back in summer 2020, for the 3rd edition!
