Comments Off on Stunning new wooden sports center in Paris is hidden underneath sprawling green roof
The complex is framed by two contrasting urban conditions: a suburban zone of detached houses in the south, and a uniform configuration of social housing towers in the north. In order to reconcile the different social and architectural scenarios, the architects created a new artificial landscape that combines educational functions, urban design, and public space .

Its laminated wood skeleton was built by Metsä Wood , a Finish manufacturer of sustainable wood products.
