Inauguration of the Halles Canopy in Paris

FAYAT - Inauguration de la Canopée des Halles à Paris

Formerly named “Forum des Halles”, the iconic building symbolizing the historic belly of Paris, located in the heart of the 1st arrondissement, has been completely renewed after five years of work. 

Anciennement Forum des Halles, l’emblématique ouvrage symbolisant le ventre historique de Paris,  situé au cœur du 1e arrondissement, a fait peau neuve à l’issue de cinq longues années de travaux.

Jean-Claude Fayat, President of the FAYAT group, with his collaborators

Four companies of the Fayat group, Castel & Fromaget, Viry, Barbot and ACML, were fully involved in this project. They realized the whole steel building, among which the complex roof which is shaped in vegetable-inspired curves, as imagined by Patrick Berger and Jacques Anziutti (architects). Each composing piece of the roof is unique. The operation required the use of 6,000 tonnes of steel and 14,000 m² of glass.

NB - The Canopy of Les Halles in Paris was awarded the Prize for Excellence in the Commercial Buildings category of the 2015 European Steel Design Awards. This European distinction was given at the biannual steel construction convention (ECCS) held in Istanbul in September.
