A “Belvedere” for the city and the Olympic site
The project competition aimed at creating a viewpoint for the potential Olympic site in Paris around Batignoles to give the chance for public and communities to have an overview of the area. Part of the brief, the Olympic committee was to use the project to review the candidate cities for the 2012 Olympic games.
A continuous looping experience inside the structure
The project is created by modules easy to transport and combined as a temporary installation. All modules assembled together form 3 legs stabilising each other and merging into a single tube as a top belvedere. The vertical circulation is a movement through the girder structure.
