Design and media


The Lille Metropolis is firmly developing in 2.0 style: the increasing power of the internet, of mobile telephone, video games, serious games and virtual worlds, represents an important economical potential for activities linked to images. In the Lille Metropolis area, this network is concentrated on the "Plain Image" installed in the eco quarters of the Union. The "Plain Image" benefits from the proximity of two main actors in the field: the CRRAV (Centre RĂ©gional de Ressources de l’Audiovisuel = Regional Audiovisual Resource Center) and the national contemporary arts studio Le Fresnoy. A television division, two film studios, about ten companies specialized in the field of audio visual, internet, communication, video games and photo are situated here. New area installed at this image division: the Imaginarium. This area, installed on the site of the renovated former "Retorderie", is an area dedicated to digital image and visual, content mixing research and innovation, and in the meantime remaining an exhibition area for the general public. Le Fresnoy, the national contemporary arts studio, opened in 1997. It is located in a building that was renovated by the French-American architect Bernard Tschumi. All year long, it displays important exhibitions of contemporary art, film programs (two film theaters Art and Trial), concerts, shows and conferences. Le Fresnoy is also a place intended for young artists.
