Arte Charpentier is a sponsor of the National Architecture School of Paris-Belleville in association with the FFA – French Athletics Federation as part of the Archi-Folies 2024 programme.


This initiative was launched by the French Ministry of Culture on the occasion of Paris 2024 – Organising Committee for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The follies will be on display in the Parc de La Villette in Paris throughout the summer.

As a project sponsor, Arte Charpentier is working with architecture students to create an Archi-folie reflecting the values of athletics.

How do you go from the theoretical case studied in class to the conception on site?


Jean-François Bailleux and Michela Donato from the firm’s Construction Department took time out of their schedules to offer advice and feedback.

Yesterday, Jean-François met the students and teaching staff at the wood workshop of the National Architecture School of Paris-Belleville to discuss the assembly of their structure and the challenges that await them during the “on-site installation” phase.
