IAMCR 2023 has the honor of taking place at the Rockefeller Campus of Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, situated on 8 avenue Rockefeller, in Lyon’s 8ème arrondissement.
Built in 1930 by a student of Tony Garnier’s, Paul Bellemain, the Rockefeller Campus is composed of six buildings including the Faculty of Medicine Lyon East, the Institute of Pharmaceutical and Biological Sciences (ISPB), and the Institute of Rehabilitation Sciences and Techniques (ISTR).
As the subject of a large architectural, technical, and heritage study in 2011, the estate’s simultaneous renovations led to the discovery of several details dating back to the 1930s. Today, the original building has been restored, with the addition of a few modern touches. Its acoustic capacities, natural and artificial light, ventilation, and accessibility make Rockefeller an ideal location for this year’s conference, the first in-person edition since 2019.
