Mapping Geneva's Regeneration
The Jardin des Nations project in Geneva is slowly transforming the International District of the city. The project involves the construction of new buildings, the extension of the tram network and new road infrastructure. Le Temps has released a story map Les Grands Chantiers de la Genève Internationale (The Major Projects of Geneva International) exploring some of the major changes taking place in the district.
To navigate the map you just need to scroll down on the website. As you scroll through the story map you can view photos and plans of the new construction projects in the side panel, while the map zooms and pans to highlight the projects on the map. The side panel also includes text (in French) explaining each project and each project's construction date.
