    Description :

    "The Halle Tony Garnier, before becoming the 'Bercy' of Lyon in the 1990s as it has been transformed then into a concert hall and show room, was at first the livestock market of the agglomeration. It repeats in a more industrial way the structural principle of the Engine room created in Paris for the 1889 World’s fair. Tony Garnier and the engineer Bertrand de Fontviolant used its idea for the big hall of the livestock market of the Abattoirs de la Mouche. Inaugurated in 1914 for the Lyon World’s fair, it has been requisitioned as a weapon factory during the Great War. Renamed later Halle Tony Garnier, it remains the most eloquent trace of the Industrial City designed by Tony Garnier. From all the buildings of the slaughterhouse (the Abattoir) only the hall has been preserved during the renovations made in the 1990s. Today the Halle Tony Garnier is a major concert place for most popular musicians and artists of our time."
