SCAU Renovates a Stadium to Make It Desirable for the 2024 Olympics

French-based architectural practice SCAU embarks on a renovation process for a stadium in Clamart that is scheduled to be finished in time for the 2024 Olympics. It seems that the theme of the overhaul is ecology and nature as the firm proposes for the structure to be covered in plants and vegetation. The Parisian stadium will enjoy a sizable extension and the green-oriented design pays homage to the nearby Meudon Forest.

Since the site of the structure is in a natural hollow, SCAU decisively "sinks most of the facilities" and incorporates large mirror glass skylights that allow for natural light to penetrate the interior. During night time, the material will reflect beams back into the stadium.

Gearing for the upcoming 2024 Olympics, SCAU's stadium design offers a functional and natural landscape for sport activities.
