CHALLENGE. In early 2016, we were appointed to design the venues and infrastructure needed to support the bid books for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games Candidature Bid.

INNOVATION. Venues for Paris 2024 are designed to embody the spirit of Agenda 2020. This involves maximizing the use of existing facilities and temporary venues. All of the venues are fully aligned with and integrated into the city’s and region’s existing long-term development plans and strategies. The venue concept is created to ensure sustainable legacies and reflects a strong commitment to minimizing environmental impact. 95% of venues are existing or temporary; 100% have a legacy.

All of the venues in the Paris 2024 Games venue concept have been selected and designed according to four key principles, in line with Agenda 2020 to ensure the Games deliver real value to the city and people.

  1. Emphasis on existing venues to minimize the investment budget
  2. Showcasing heritage to optimize spectator, brand and broadcast benefits
  3. Alignment with existing plans to maximize development opportunities
  4. Meeting the needs of our communities to create a meaningful and lasting legacy

More than 70% of the venues in our Games plan are existing facilities. A further 25% will be temporary structures, which will contribute to establishing new spaces and facilities for sport within the public domain.

IMPACT. At the 131st International Olympic Committee Session, held in Lima, Peru, IOC President Thomas Bach announced that Paris would host the 2024 summer Olympic Games.
