Car-park operator LPA was established by the Lyon metro authority in 1969, when Louis Pradel was mayor of Lyon, two years before the Fourvière Tunnel opened. In 1989, LPA chairman Serge Guinchard brought art into its facilities, with works by leading contemporary figures such as Daniel Buren and François Morellet at the Célestins and République car parks respectively. The idea was to make car parks cultural venues accessible to all, promoting interaction between car users and pedestrian visitors.
