The winning concept of Paris as an Olympic Park will see Olympic and Paralympic events take place against the spectacular backdrop of the French capital with its historic buildings, streets and landmarks including the Champs Elysees and River Seine, and beach volleyball courts at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. The Games will build on the history and identity of Paris, as well as its experience in hosting the climax of the world-renowned Tour de France, to create an unforgettable experience.

The architectural design for both new and temporary venues and facilities will seek to shape and integrate sporting spectacles in the city’s urban landscape whilst supporting Paris 2024’s commitment to be the most sustainable Games ever. As part of the bid, design firms Populous and Egis have worked in association with sport and culture consulting agency ISC on plans to ensure the existing venues are ready for the scale and needs of Olympic and Paralympic events.

The concept has been presented and promoted with night-time views. For sure light will play an important role in the execution of the concept.

Architects: Populous, in collaboration with Egis
