Dam on the river Blavet in Inzinzac-Lochrist

Inzinzac Lochrist's dam fights the waterfloods with the Lochrist and Grand barrage's dams, constructed on the Blavet river, as well as it improves the living-water state function on the upstream dam site.

La Truchère's dam site is situated in a coherent landscape, inside a rich ecological system, thus generating an important touristic inflow (waterways, strolls, diners, and resorts). The picturesque site has required an intensive care, both in its approach and towards the structures themselves.

Two obvious landscapes could be distinguished: the upstream, and its regulated water plan, offering a viewpoint on the bridge and the downstream, opening towards the Saône's valley, and the bridge's monumentality. The project is based on two axis: underlining the asymmetry of the site, in order to enforce the balcony effect of the place, and composing a confidential viewpoint structure from the downstream.
