Pavilions 2 & 3
Christian de Portzamparc's horizontal façade
The project for the façade of Pavilions 2 and 3 takes full advantage of the building’s outstanding horizontal qualities. A lit, animated frieze running the entire length of the façade can be used to display event information and artistic works.
The façade consists of a series of large opaque metal surfaces placed before the structure’s glass front, which brings natural light into the pavilions. This simple play of light will help give events a lively appeal.
