Depending on the near context, new kinds of activities come into the existing filling stations. Sometimes, it’s about a question of lake, a care to reinforce or let to happen ; here it’s a will to let discover a new environment in the city, new animals, new scents.

   ground detoxification by culture of specific trees   
   an educational action : a farm into the city for children of neighboord’s schools   
   new animals into the city   
   concrete re-using as building new type of boundaries   
Gabions are boxes made of steel normaly full of stones ; here we re-use the concrete and some stones. Along the time, the wind let some earth and seeds ; the vegetation grows until to hide the structure.
   even if we live in town, we can discover a lot of type of nature   
What about to work in a garden, to see the growth each morning, to smell the nature while you’re living in the hypercenter.
Isn’t it a new experience ?

what kind of environment

.

The different filling stations transformed are mainly invaded by a controled nature in the first time. It’s allowing the evolution of a new ecosystem with its rules, receiving time after time a «third landsacape».

.

Indeed the first phase consists to rid of pollution the different grounds by planting a specific vegetation, some tree species. In a second time, a regional vegetation will grow in this urban environment, supporting the first plantation.

.

Then, nature reclaims its rights and its own logic ; different species, not anticipated, will grow in their turns.

.

.
Filling stations’ shops not possessing an outdoor land are used to create sell points for the market gardeners from around Lyon.
Import is made by the way of the proximity and the redistribution can made on the site or by bicycle taking the new bicycle path network created.

.

.

.

Until nowadays, in 2010, it’s like that. A lot of bitume and concrete, citerns, a steel penthouse, a shop or pay-building and a board for the brand name and informations about prices.

.

.

What about tomorrow, 2020 is not so far ... let’s begin removing bitume.

   detoxification   

Trees bring many favours thanks to their positive influence on ecosystemic properties : fight against the erosion, shadow, nitrogen fixation, water control, water quality by filtration, biodiversity, greenhouse effect reducing, polluted or surexploited sites rehabilitation.

.

just little things to make a better place

.

.

.

phytoremediation


Use of specific vegetation, plants and tree species to clean up polluted sites by chemicals or oil products.

.

   recycle   

By the way of recycling, everything is on the site and above all we can reintroduce some things into another cycle, system. Depending on the «context», elements become functional by theirselves, aid or complete existing or created system.

.

re-using bitume is needed

.

.

a new water cycle is possible


rainfall in Lyon 75mm
76 liter/m2

.

.

and we need to protect & respect garden made by neighbourhoods’ people
