dc.description.abstract The Pavillon de l'Arsenal is the centre for information, documentation and exhibition for urban planning and architecture of Paris. A remarkable temporary building was intended to mark the Batignolles location to showcase its Olympian future and reveal its urban potential through a visual landmark at the heart of a location chosen by Paris 2012. The Olympic Landmark will host an exhibition centre to introduce Paris 2012. To meet this challenge, Paris 2010 launched an international architecture competition: 454 projects, from over 80 countries, were submitted. The jury included very high profile international architects: Peter Cook, Shigeru Ban, Jean Nouvel. This research project is based on the transformation of symbolic elements of the sporting world, most notably the running track. The deformation, folding and twisting of the running track forms the basis for: -a continuous and fluid path from the ground up to the top of the landmark; -the creation of an exhibition environment dedicated to the Olympic Games; -a panoramic view of the future Olympic site from a platform enclosed by simple mesh envelop; -a sporting context in which the public are immersed and physically challenged; -the projection of the Olympic symbol in the sky above Paris.
