Entrusted to the VenhoevenCS (Amsterdam) and Ateliers 2/3/4/ (Paris) agencies, as part of the consortium led by Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France with Récréa and Dalkia, the aquatic centre and the pedestrian overpass will be delivered for the Paris 2024 Games.  The aquatic centre will then become a major public facility that is part of the city and open to the surrounding area. The design is based on innovative eco-construction principles to make it an exemplary project: an architecture that promotes ecological transition and environmental sobriety.

The design of the new Aquatic Centre and its crossing for the 2024 Olympic Games is designed to guarantee an unforgettable edition of the Games – Paris 2024, but also and above all to become after the Games, an innovative sports centre for the inhabitants of La Plaine Saint-Denis.

Multifunctional and modular use

During the Olympic Games, the Aquatics Centre will host water polo, diving and synchronised swimming competitions. For the Paralympic Games, the building will be converted into a boccia stadium. It will then be transformed once again, becoming a neighbourhood facility focused on sports. In the future it will be able to host major swimming competitions.

Une construction durable et en bois

Le bois est au cœur du Centre Aquatique, il lui donne son identité et forme sa structure. La toiture, fine, flottante et ondulée, offre au public une visibilité parfaite des bassins depuis les tribunes.
Le projet dépasse les directives en matière de durabilité. Notamment, le développé de toiture, vient entièrement se recouvrir de panneaux solaires ; ce qui en fait l’une des plus grandes fermes solaires urbaines de France.
Il illustre comment les principes de conception durable peuvent conduire à une nouvelle architecture, qui contribue à l’amélioration du cadre de vie de nos villes.

A sustainable wooden construction

Wood is at the heart of the Aquatic Centre, giving it its identity and forming its structure. The thin, floating, corrugated roof offers the public a perfect view of the pools from the stands.
The project exceeds the guidelines for sustainability. In particular, the roof development is completely covered with solar panels, making it one of the largest urban solar farms in France.
It illustrates how sustainable design principles can lead to a new architecture, which contributes to the improvement of the living environment of our cities.

A co-constructed project

The project is being developed by a team of enthusiastic experts, including Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France, Récréa and Dalkia, and in inspiring collaboration with the Greater Paris Metropolis and Paris 2024.
