The intervention is part of the renovation project for the Roland Garros, a stadium dedicated to one of the most famous French heroes of the Great War and located near the Parc des Princes in the southwest of Paris.


For the central Philippe-Chatrier court, the reconstruction of the existing stands and the formation of a retractable steel roof were planned: this new imposing device, positioned at a height of 31 meters instead of 26 meters of the previous structure, is made up of 11 high-strength steel box beams, each with a weight of 320 tons and a height of about 3 meters, covering a span of over 100 meters.

There are 5 technical solutions for the access gateways to the grandstands.


The sections of the details are shown in the plan and in the prospect drawing.
