Life @ ENS de Lyon



Our campus boasts a garden of 8 hectares, conceived by Gilles Clément cherished by students, teachers and administrative staff alike. It serves as a peaceful haven to those who want to read, reflect, stretch out their legs or simply admire the plants and flowers planted throughout the year. But it's also a meeting point for many, for a coffee break or a picnic, and a pillar of life on the campus.

The annual event "Rendez-vous aux jardins", promoted by the French ministry of culture, invites everyone to stop and smell the roses by strolling across the ENS de Lyon's vast and lush garden.

Gilles Clément

Gilles Clément is a French gardener, garden designer, botanist, entomologist and writer. In 1998, he was the recipient of France's National Landscape Prize. He is mostly known for the conception of the "moving garden".
