Extension du stade Rolland Garros

An ATEx (Technical Experimentation Assessment) procedure for the construction of the glass-panelled roof

The tennis court is surrounded by open stands on all 4 sides, formed from slender metal porticos with glass risers. The partially-underground court is bordered by 4 exhibition greenhouses, which can be visited by the public, set to house exotic plants from the City of Paris's botanical garden. Their light and transparent structure supports double-glazed glass panels set up with inverted inclines. The assembly of the stand and greenhouse frameworks has been completed.
