The design by Patrick Berger and Jacques Anziutti, anticipates creating new commercial and cultural spaces beneath a vast glass roof, described as a canopy or a leaf resting on the ground.
The structure, in the site model, has a greenish-yellow color inspired by vegetation; it will cover a construction area of 396' x 462'.
It will open onto severals gardens, which another French architect, David Mangin, was chosen to redesign.
