A Lyon, une photographie géante fait BASCULER le paysage urbain

A Lyon, une photographie géante fait BASCULER le paysage urbain | Mapping Public Intensities | Scoop.it
Pour quelques mois, une monumentale photo conçue par l’artiste Philippe Ramette interagit avec le quartier de la Part-Dieu, qui commence sa mue.

 

Depuis quelques jours, au milieu de la grisaille hivernale, il est une portion du ciel qui est au beau fixe en plein cœur de Lyon. Il s’agit d’une monumentale photographie de 45 mètres de large et de 25 mètres de haut imaginée par l’artiste Philippe Ramette, qui renverse littéralement le paysage urbain, et dégage l’horizon devant la gare de la Part-Dieu.


Alors que l’esplanade où elle se déploie était entravée depuis plusieurs décennies par un immeuble de bureaux, la ville a décidé de soustraire celui-ci du paysage, et ainsi d’ouvrir les perspectives de son vaste quartier d’affaires, dont la rénovation débute. La photographie de quelque 1 100 m2 est imprimée sur la bâche recouvrant l’échafaudage de confinement du bâtiment, installé pour cinq mois, jusqu’en mai, le temps de la phase de désamiantage de ses façades.

Airbnb vs. Berlin? Was sagen die Daten?

Airbnb vs. Berlin? Was sagen die Daten? | Mapping Public Intensities | Scoop.it
Die Mieten in Berlin steigen. Das hat viele Gründe. »Sharing Economy«-Portale wie Airbnb locken Touristen und sind ein lohnenswertes Geschäft.
