Story Of The Month
Return of the FIAC !
The Grand Palais Ephémère was conceived by Wilmotte & Associés, and the structure of the building is designed to be modular so that it can be reused in multiple configurations after its removal from the Champ-de-Mars in autumn 2024.
The wood used for the structure is PEFC certified, from sustainably managed forests, and the double-skin that encloses the building has strong acoustic, thermal and ventilation properties, which helps to reduce overall energy costs. The transparent fabric visible from the outside is made of mineral and non-petroleum based polymers, generating 90% less energy in the manufacturing process than glass and it is entirely recyclable.
We chose some of our favourites from this year’s edition in the slideshow above!
