Aquatic Center Christine Caron, INSEP (The National Institute of Sports and Physical Education)

Leclercq associés en tant que Architectes.

The Aquatic Center gathers 4 disciplines: swimming, water polo, diving and synchronized swimming. The main building and its extension’s roof tapers in long lower eaves to gradually and discretely blend into the Bois de Vincennes. In continuation of the pools, landscaped slopes indicate the building’s belonging to the Bois.

The structure unfolds in a horizontal origami style, which pleatings and cuttings form a sawtooth roof determining the lighting of the Pool Hall. Servant spaces are shared in a refined and airy clapboarded volume, in connection with the Sports Hall. The Aquatic Center is a pilot operation for the HEQ certification of swimming-pools.

3 pools, 2 buildings, 1 aquatic center The main building and its extension are linked by the ground continuity, by the roof and by their relationship with the Bois de Vincennes.

The black wall, as a common thread, goes from the synchronized swimming pool to the swimming pool. It holds the ventilation required for defogging the windows.

The grassy slope marks the belonging of the new aquatic stadium to the Bois de Vincennes.
