looking to the future

Ten architects or teams from France and overseas will be appointed to design the residential buildings for the Paris 2012 Olympic Village.  Whilst this appointment does not guarantee a long-term contract with the City of Paris, successful proposals will be published and given to project owners with respect for the construction of all Olympic Village buildings.
The aim of this project is to attract proposals for the internal organisation of the residential units in the future Olympic Village.  This goes hand in hand with the urban project drawn up by architect and town planner F. Grether, landscape architect J. Osty and the OGI technical research team for the Paris 2012 Bid Committee and SEMAVIP (Ville de Paris).
The public invitation to tender is open from September 28th until 4pm Friday October 22nd, 2004.  Each proposal will be evaluated on urban planning and architectural value (60%) and suitability in the light of the specific context of the Olympic Village: concentration, flexibility, sustainable development and post-Olympic use (40%).
This unique mission not only involves the creation of a set of graphical documents but the participation in two workshops, encouraging debate and preparations with all other service providers selected by the City of Paris.
The reward for each winning team is 22,000Euro, excluding taxes.
