Gallery | Plans for vegetated Olympic stadium in Paris

Beijing had the Bird’s Nest, London had its Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and now Paris looks set to have its own unique Olympic venue.

SCAU Architectes of France has submitted proposals for a “vegetated stadium” to open in time for the 2024 Olympic Games.

Located at the edge of a forest at Clamart in south west Paris, the stadium has been designed to be covered in a green mass of vegetation.

The green covering allows for skylights and light channels combined with mirrored glass surfaces to flood light into the interior spaces.

Meanwhile the stadium itself would be placed in the natural slope of the site to preserve views of the forest.

The site includes a bowling alley, game room, gymnasium, athletics hall, and underground parking.
