The Rhône-Alpes Pavilion will be a global showcase for the green-building and urban lighting innovations and know-how of companies based in Rhône-Alpes, demonstrating their skills and expertise to Chinese and other international contractors.
It is being built to Qualité Environnementale du Bâti (environmental quality in building) standards and will highlight not only the economic and technical potential of the Rhône-Alpes region, but also its cultural and tourism possibilities.
A rose garden has been specially created by ILEX Paysage, the landscape designers, in close cooperation with eight rose growers based in Rhône-Alpes (Gaujard Créations, Pépinières et Roseraies Paul Croix, Roseraie Dorieux, Roseraie Ducher, Roseraie Guillot, Roseraie Reuter, Roseraies Laperriere and Roseraies Orard), France’s Old Roses Society and the French National Rose Society.
