Location: PARIS LA DEFENSE, France.

Architect: 2Portzamparc.

The Stadium “Paris La Défense Arena” project is the largest indoor multipurpose facility with variable capacity in France. It is located in the town of Nanterre, feet of the “Grande Arche” of La Défense and is designed to host the rugby team “Racing-Metro 92”, the French rugby legend since 1882. It has a horseshoe layout and a main entrance on the core axis of La Défense. It is surrounded by a “necklace” of glass scales forming a regular series of shells in white and gray aluminum and lightly serigraphed glass.
