Laying of the foundation stone: Arena Porte de la Chapelle

Tuesday, 5 October 2021, the foundation stone of the Arena Porte de la Chapelle project in Paris was laid in the presence of the Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, and the head of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games organising committee, Tony Estanguet. The structure will house the badminton and rhythmic gymnastics events of the 2024 Olympic Games. This hall will be able to welcome 7,000 spectators.

Our team is responsible for both the structural and façade design. The structure in the gymnasium area is a combination of concrete and wood elements. The base consists of a steel curtain wall façade and wooden cladding.

The arena is scheduled to open in 2023.
