The Cité du Design, Saint-Etienne

Antoine's pick

The Cité du Design in Saint Etienne was built in the mid-2000s, and in a few short years it has become one of Europe's major centres of design.
Today, Saint Etienne is a city at the cutting edge of progress; a modern, dynamic place. This change in the city was recognised in 2010 when UNESCO added Saint Etienne to the Creative Cities Network, along with the likes of Buenos Aires, Berlin and Shanghai. Well-deserved recognition that should be saluted and more widely known.
