The Olympic Games forge a strong relationship between the identity of a city, its urban planning and the practice of sport to deliver a common experience to the nations gathered. It is precisely this dynamic between local and international that Dominique Perrault has placed at the heart of the project.
For the 2024 Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games, Dominique Perrault sees the village as a metropolitan, open and innovative district. It will also provide athletes from all over the world with a real experience of the Grand-Paris, its cultural wealth and its landscape qualities. Spread over three communes (Saint-Ouen, Saint-Denis, L'île Saint-Denis) and crossed by the river - an unprecedented fact in the history of olympic villages - the village will be part of a mixed territory in its functions, already inhabited and already subject to change.
Connected to the major metropolitan transport networks, located close to most of the competition venues, the village site, compact and enjoying a seven-hectare stretch of water on the Seine, meets the IOC's functional efficiency requirements. But the project also offers the athletes a quality urban experience. It offers the opportunity to reveal this territory on the banks of the Seine and to discover the new face of the Grand Paris metropolis.
The urban project offers great flexibility and allows the reversibility of the installations after the event. The urban strategy undertaken is a long-term reflection with the aim of creating a new sustainable district, a part of the city offered to all, anchored in its territory and geography.
