Lyons and Pittsburgh (1) Soo much water…

This is what comes to mind when you see Lyons, in France, as the Rhone and the Saone river converge. The central city is a long, narrow peninsula between both rivers.

Factoring (some…) things apart, Pittsburgh is not that far from the concept: hills, rivers and people. It is interesting to confront an American city that simply can not be a grid (too steep land) to an european one.
