The Antiquaille is located on Fourvière hill, not far from the Basilica, the Roman theatres and the Gallo-Roman museum. Before becoming a well-known local hospital, it was the site of a sumptuous residence built by a local dignitary, Pierre Sala, who named it “Anticaille” in reference to the Roman ruins discovered on site. The building became a Visitandine convent before being taken over by the city authorities and converted into a poor house in the 19th Century then into a speciality hospital a century later. It closed down in 2003 and now houses private flats, a Michelin-starred restaurant and a museum. Antiquaille was Lyon’s first hospital to be reintegrated into the city fabric.

As part of the partnership with the Institut Français for the joint France-Romania 2019 season, students studying lighting at Lyon University III have teamed up with architecture students from Leipzig University and master's degree students from Bucharest's CINETic Institute. Having met in Leipzig last October, these young talents have created and produced a number of light installations to match the plants and architectural features of the Jardin André Malraux.
