Hosted by Biodistrict Lyon-Gerland, the 2017 edition of Lyon City Demain had a successful run last June. Fourteen international competition winners presented their projects to the public in Lyon, France.
The free, festive event centered on well-being and better living in the city. It focused on 3 main themes: a place for tomorrow’s food, natural environment with mobility and social links for constructing the city of tomorrow. The participants’ prototypes presented at the festival shared elements of responses that integrate such lifestyle transformations.
Notable examples included the Trioco, an autonomous outdoor co-working space powered by solar panels and designed by Elodie Saugues. There was also a lightweight, transportable above-ground vegetable garden created by Archifluid which allows zero-consumption agricultural production of a diverse range of fruits and vegetables. Marc and Caterina Aurel presented their collection of connected ceramic objects for urban areas.Learn more about the Aurel design here.
