'Le Monolithe', an energy efficient mixed-use urban block located in the development area Confluence at the southern tip of Lyon's Presqu'île, has reached completion. The structure with a total surface of 32.500 m2 combines social housing, rental property, a residence for disabled people, offices and retail. The block is composed of five sections, each one designed by a different architect, following the MVRDV masterplan: Pierre Gautier, Manuelle Gautrand, ECDM and Erik van Egeraat. Landscape architects West 8 designed the public plaza. MVRDV designed the head section which advertises over the full façade the European integration by quoting the EU constitution.

Out of scale, and out of quality. A complicated process for a bad result. Urban qualities are really low

A very MVRDV building. Good-looking but no very-ecological.
