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.

remove bitume to re-discover the «real» land

   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

Lyon full of fuel

full of fuel


The choice is to take possession of filling stations. Actually, we count 39 allocated around the historical center.

Re-functionalizing fueling stations, it’s to intervene in all the city areas. However, the intervening scale being small, it isn’t altering the neighbourhood. Each one keeps its own character but a real breathing space of proximity is growing ; a convenience green space.

a new vision about the city territory of Lyon_ france

The project of full of fuel considers the climate change and the peak oil and proposes to reunite inhabitants with the primary nature they’re issued.
The wish is to create some specific mutual-aid links between people and between them and nature.

full of fuel consists in reclaiming the future abandonned sites after the peak oil. It coul be possible to deal with petrochimical factories -2 in Lyon-, but the project has the wish to propose a human scale action and more precisly to make an action at the neighbourhood scale, in order to each one of us could have the feeling to be concerned.

Thus, we need to reconsider the term of landscape.
Nowadays, we can’t restrain landscape as the nature. And to extend it, Lucien KROLL set straight us about a new consideration of landscape.

«The landscape : we want to call landscape the shape produced by countless compatible peoples actions which continually weaving connections between things, and not the big arbitrary decisions which produce something monumental, propaganda.»


Therefore, a lot of interactions has to be integrated to think about the landscape of the city’s territory. Social, ecosystemic, financial but not only. The question of the time, the growing, the sensitization, the way of dwell in the contemporary city are the base of this project.
Because, we refuse the strong action, synonym of the tabula rasa princip, we’ve prefered to explore the notion of mutation based on the existing.

And to begin, it’s intersting to point some existing dispositives and to compare them to the localization of filling stations in Lyon, surely the first territories in distress with a peak oil.

.

   velo’v network   

With a contract for 13 years about advertising support, a french society had to introduce a bicycle rental network in Lyon.
Today, it represents 343 stations in Lyon.

Take it for free for the 30 first min, and the cost is 1€ until 1 hour. After it’s 2€ per 1/2 hour.
Take it back at any stations.

.

   share gardens     

In Lyon, many gardens grow between buildings, on an empty parcel ... They are a place to share ; experiences, the taste to garden or just to be in a specific place in the city with other people. The base is to be citizen and responsible, favouring meets and neighbourhood life; garden into the city transforming the relationships between people and their environment.

.

   parks and gardens   


Lyon has 3 urban parks and many public gardens.
The two famous are Tête d’Or with105 ha and Gerland with 9 ha.
