Built in the 1930s on the docks of Lyon Confluence, this former sugar warehouse on the banks of the Saône River is more than 80 years old. It was given a new lease of life in 2003 with the arrival of the Biennial Contemporary Art Exhibition, which is acknowledged as one of the most important in Europe.

Today, La Sucrière has been completely renovated and is one of the only historic buildings remaining in the Lyon Confluence area. As such, the building has become a flagship symbol of the district!

La Sucrière has 4 levels and has been designed to host art exhibitions and private or public events simultaneously by providing:

- The 1930 Area: 1 large room of 1700m², on the ground floor, overlooked by a mezzanine of 1100 m²
- The 1960 Area: 1 room of 600m², on the ground floor

- An exhibition area of 1700m² on level 2, exclusively devoted to artistic events that will programmed throughout the year.
