The guided tour will take you to the Urban Museum's boutique antenna. A friendly welcome from the "guide-speaker", the group is there, "let's go". We begin with the garden spaces that follow one another, built like a tree-lined courtyard of the villas of ancient Rome. (net influence of the architect-planner) . These spaces are gridded between the buildings all identical. Changes have been made since the 1930s: elevator, bow-window to insulate balconies and recently digicodes, listing residents scrolling on screen and camera in connection with the apartment, a must! The speaker tells us the history of this residence over the years, contribute murals from drawings produced by Tony Garnier visionary urban planner. Also proposed is the visit of an apartment (property of the association of the museum and elected tenants) remained in its juice of the 30s, "inhabited" furniture and objects donated by residents. Too little known this important complex (1542 dwellings) is major for Lyon, a city that has grown over the centuries and influences from neighboring countries and has , with this realization a typical "30s example of great architectural value. Tony Garnier was not Grand Prix of Rome (1889) for nothing. Edouard Herriot, mayor of Lyon who entrusted him with several achievements, was not mistaken.

There are 24 painted walls, the last date of 2016 (it is superb) We were there in the morning and we could not access the apartment (open only in the afternoon) Very nice walk in the middle of well-wooded social housing
It's a great place for a walk on a sunny day. The murals are a nice work of art.
A shared open space.
