This project is a shelter for an archeological site in the Luthès arena in Paris. In this project, we focused on the structure. The purpose of this project was to give us an initiation of architectural constructive approaches. The archeological digs are located between the bleachers and the stage.

Because of the project nature, I worked on constructive methods that don’t needs foundation to preserve the research zone. Thus, the shelter is composed of a tensile structure stabilized with ballast. Through, the tensile structure pre-load is entirely handled by a rigid frame.
