The project designs the cultural and sports centre of Malley as an “Urban Piece” that is widely open towards its neighbourhood. Every element of the sports and cultural programme is represented in an individual building with an own identity and visibility towards the urban context: the wide convex volume of the ice hockey stadium and auditorium; a tower building stacking the tennis and the fencing courts; a long hall for the Olympic indoor swimming pool. In addition there is the vertical element of the office tower. A pedestrian road, as an extension of the square in front of the Cité des Sports, allows the visitor to move freely between the buildings.
