- The Press Release ( PDF - 61 Ko)
President of Paris 2012 and Mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoë inaugurated the International Architecture Competition Exhibition for the Olympic Landmark at the Pavillon de l’Arsenal in the French capital.

The Olympic Landmark, a temporary structure, will be erected in February 2005, in the 17th arrondissement, the quarter where the Olympic Village will be situated if Paris is chosen to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The competition winners, Yves Le Pagès and Le Thierry d’Ennequin, produced a design that consists of a light, fluid structure, tall and visible from all of Paris. The winners were selected by a jury comprised of the Olympic and Paralympic champions, international architects, and Paris 2012 representatives.

454 projects from more than 80 countries were submitted for the competition. Open to all architects and designers nationally and internationally, the competition was anonymous. Entrants were called upon to enter their designs via the Internet, between June 1st and
September 6th, 2004.

All the projects submitted to the jury will be exhibited at the Pavillon de l'Arsenal, the City of Paris' Information, Documentation and Exhibition Centre on Urban Development and Architecture, beginning December 7, 2004.
