Nice Eco Stadium in Côte d'Azur by Jean-Michel Wilmotte
September 19, 2013

Nice Eco Stadium Allianz Riviera Jean-Michel WilmotteThe Allianz Riviera is the first of the new stadiums that will be built for UEFA Euro 2016. Designed as a large multi-purpose facility with 45,000 seats, it will be the first landmark structure of – and the showcase for – the Var Eco Valley, a vast urban and regional development programme that has been declared project of national interest.
“The Allianz Riviera has received very strong backing from the city goverment who wanted an exemplary project in terms of sustainable development,” confirms Xavier Lortat-Jacob, chief executive of Nice Eco Stadium, the VINCI Concessions-led company that holds the partnership contract and will become the stadium’s operator.
“For us, it wasn’t a matter of simply ‘greenwashing’ the project. We structured the design approach around environmental issues, and the way we articulated that priority has been a keystone of our success.” The project has been developed by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. It combines bold innovation and eco-design. Examples include the stadium’s wooden lattice structure, the natural ventilation system that leverages the dominant winds of the Var plain, and the photovoltaic panels that make it energy positive.
The stadium will be used mainly by OGC Nice, the city’s resident football club. Currently located in Paris, France’s national sports museum will be moved to the new facility. 5,000 sq. metres of space will be dedicated to the new museum.
