Modular, mobile and flexible architecture, conceived and designed by NAJAP architect (New Albums for Young Architects and Landscape) Philippe Rizzotti, the Factatory consists of several units, made of wood, steel and glass, inspired by the units of Jean Prouvé. These spaces measuring 18m2 each operate exclusively as workshops for visual artists, designers and architects. And when the weather permits, each unit opens up onto outdoor areas that provide artists with a larger workspace. The Factatory is a place of creation / cross-disciplinary production that is primarily dedicated to research and experimentation. This takes place by means of a selection of designers who work in a diverse range of mediums occupying these spaces for varying lengths of time. It is also thanks to its flexible and adaptable architectural layout which can be altered for different uses.
The Factatory is financially supported by the DRAC Rhône-Alpes, the Rhône-Alpes Region and the City of Lyon. In partnership with companies: Sammode, Métal Créa Concept, Préfac, Miroiterie, du Rhône and Descours & Cabaud.
