Station Prouvé

Jean Prouvé is considered to be one of the most inventive architects of the 20th century, and his work contains some of the most significant examples of the modern period.

Commissioned by Total at the end of the 1960s to develop a new brand image, the Station Prouvé is a prototype for a gas station designed to be moved to different locations depending on changes in traffic conditions.

Refurbished for Estuaire 2009, it allows visitors to experience and share a moment in the history of design. Here, you will find all the services of Nantes.Tourisme to help you organize your stay: brochures, tickets, guided tours, Passes, and more.

Nantes is transforming

Nantes is changing to become an even more ecological, inclusive, and dynamic city. To do this, new public works will reinforce our already existing ecofriendly modes of transport: new tram lines, green zones for pedestrians and cyclists, and more. From 2024, these major urban projects will disrupt traffic around Les Machines de l’Île and Parc des Chantiers, with the Pont Anne-de-Bretagne bridge closed off to cars (the bridge will remain accessible to pedestrians and cyclists). Solutions will be offered throughout construction to make it easier for everyone to get around, like: increased frequency of several public transport lines, more Naolib bike-share bicycles, and more parking spots in park-and-ride lots.
