Grenoble General: 50 reviews and 50 photos
Favorite thing: In 1967, for the Winter Olympics, Grenoble needed a "Stade de Glace". P. Junillon and R. Demarini were the architects, helped by N Esquillan, a concrete architect. The cover structure is made of four segments of shells, themselves made of two 7 cm thick concrete veils separated by a technical void of 1 meter. The structure covers 12,000 square meters.
The four segments meet at right angle and built on four "culées" made of a tripod of reinforced concrete held by 24 meters deep piles. The largest span is 95m and the smallest 65 m. The cover structure is independent of the fronts that hold the steps and there is no link between both.
It is now a "Palais des sports", used for various sport events such as the cycling "Les Six jours de Grenoble" ans art shows.
Adresse : parc Paul Mistral.
