Résumé

This video shows how for Lyon, or Saint-Ouen, the use of digital technology is now essential in architecture and urban planning. For heritage preservation or for previewing purposes, modelling either existing environments or projects is a valuable decision-making aid.
Renato Saleri, urban architect at the MAP, a joint laboratory of the CNRS and the Ministry of Culture and Communication, explores the techniques and tools used in the modelling work on the old Lyon city section for heritage purposes, which make it possible to preserve a digital trace of urban objects. He also elaborates on the new emerging techniques as they were used in modelling the village of Savigny.
Makan Rafatdjou, urban planner and architect, explains the new possibilities and the versatility opened up by using 3D computer graphics in the renovation of the docks area in Saint-Ouen, which simplifies the design of the future buildings and planning their insertion into the landscape.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
