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
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.
