Trolleybus 'Axe Frontenex'
Geneva, Thônex, Switzerland
Study for the insertion of a trolley bus line in urban and peripheral-urban areas. Multidisciplinary and complex study of diverse environments integrating planning, landscaping and mobility.
A complete analysis of the extended urban tissue needs to be performed in order to achieve a coherent concept for the territory.
First is to analyze the potential and the constraints of the site, which would help us establish the urban, landscaping and traffic principles in order to respond to the specificities of the architectural program and the sites. Presentations and discussion groups were organized with different local inhabitant associations.
Soil treatment, street furniture, bus shelters and street lighting were carefully studied and designed. A landscaping concept was developed. The project looks to completely reinvigorate the “Frontenex axis” alongits entire path.
