The project, located in a french seaside town Canet en Roussillon, takes place near an existing college. In this very flat landscape, its vocation of signal is given by its important dimensions which assert his role of public equipment. The nearness of the sea forced the architect to use resistant materials like galvanized steel and Douglas pine. The first volume is the the sporting hall; its dimensions are approved by the main sports federations. The second one, built in concrete, bases the equipment along the canal wich contains locker rooms and secondary premises.
