The design of the Lyon nightscape is a joint venture between the government and the citizens. Various lighting materials are used by trail and error throughout the city to create its lightscape. Standing on a street corner one gets the impression that paint materials were thrown onto a canvas, as the artist decided what kind of city and nightscape to paint.
The striking blue florescent lights and sodium lamps illuminate the National Institute of Music along the River Saone.
The view from La Colline de Fourviere across the City of Lyon is beautiful, with no glaring lights in sight.
The Justice Suspension Bridge over the River Saone is just 4.2 meters wide.
