The stadium & surrounding areas where a gamble was taken on architectural renovation
As well as the stadium, a true showcase of charisma and style, the introduction of several new generation parking lots are to be added to this modern picture. A sustainable and fluid landscape approach with green spaces, access for all, and quality materials and finishes will complete the area perfectly.
These parks benefit from a real artistic touch. "We had to make the place more people friendly & inviting", said Amaury Dubois. Regional and thematic works are produced in different colours for easy identification inside the B1 park.
An added value that helps to makes sense of this building.
A ambitious project in 40 stages. This is the number of works of art Amaury Dubois has suggested in Annex B1 at the heart of the building designed by NORPAC - a subsidiary of Bouygues. A titanic artistic and logistical work that Amaury Dubois has flung himself into with passion in order to complete this audacious and ambitious project: a genuine participation in the architectural design of premises. With its distinctive style, the art of Amaury Dubois is visible everywhere. "This is the first exhibition which can be visited by car. " he added.
Focus on the frescoes, the direction arrows... scattered around these places, they give the impression of intense activity and movement. Every corner symbolizes this excitement. They represent the movement of people, their dreams, their desires, their hopes.
The white curves, in particular, represent the men who come together to create and develop a better world, and improve it. Without man there are no dreams.
The city exists only because we bring it to life. All the frescoes represent the same philosophical idea: put our differences aside and unite our energies to promote the Eurométropole, sport, culture, nature, innovation... the 5 themes of these frescoes.
On the occasion of the largest architectural project of the past 10 years, the area around the "Grand Stade Lille Métropole" welcomes the definitive Amaury Dubois installations into its very heart.
