Urban Stakes is a new type of skyscraper designed by French architects Laurent Bariat and Yann Magnet for the city of Lyon in France.

During the last four decades its population has dramatically increased and the urban fabric is rapidly growing with careful consideration of the environment.

Their proposal explores the possibility of creating vertical structures that connect to the existing infrastructure and will provide the necessary residential, commercial, and recreational areas for the next century. The most important element of their proposal is to preserve the complexity of the horizontal city in a vertical structure. The idea is to provide different types of circulations with mix-use programs.
