MAD Architects has revealed its design proposal for the Aquatic Centre for the Paris 2024 Olympics. Envisioning the sports facility as an urban public artwork, showcasing the beauty and hope of Paris, the proposal was created in collaboration with three French architectural studios, Jacques Rougerie Architecture, Atelier Phileas Architecture, and Apma Architecture. Led by Ma Yansong, MAD Architects was invited to participate in the international competition to design the Aquatic Centre for the Paris 2024 Olympics. One of two large structures to be built for the Olympics, separated by a high-speed road and linked by a pedestrian bridge, the Aquatic Center will host the opening and closing ceremonies of the Paris 2024. In fact, most of the 36 venues set for the event will be housed in existing or temporary infrastructure, following the committee’s wish to host the games as carbon neutral as possible.
