Forum des Halles was an urban project to set up a wholesale market for Villette and Rungis. It was conducted in order to revitalize this part of the capital. This project was decided by the Prime Minister Michel Debré 14 March 1960. An underground city was in sight with the intersection of transportation. Les Halles Baltars were demolished for the construction of the underground RER station. The company's joint development Halles Economics was created in 1972 to manage the rebuilding of Les Halles. The company defined the outline of the forum with the help of architects and Georges Claude Vasconi Pencreac'h. When it opened in 1979, has 190 stores occupying 43,000 square meters.
A competition was launched in 2004 for the renovation of the forum. Four projects were selected whose draft Rem Koolhaas, Winy Maas of the project, the proposed project David Mangin and Jean Nouvel. It is ultimately the project David Mangin is retained to be applied. The initial project was to make visible the tracks that are below the living exchange, put a large skylight on the surface and break the floor of the exchange room. The skylights were rejected because the residents association was not thrilled with the idea. Willerval the pavilions in 1980 was substituted by a building inspired by the plant world. This part is called the canopy because of its resemblance to the upper part of the forest that is in contact with sunlight. This part of the building was not provided for by the 2004 competition and sparked another contest in 2007. She was then designed by architects Patrick Berger and Jacques Anziutti. It consists of structures of iron and glass and measures 14 meters in height. The canopy is scheduled for 2014, while the remains of the work is planned for 2016.
The canopy will include a conservatory, a library, a workshop amateur practice, a cultural center for the deaf and hearing impaired and a center for hip hop. It opens onto a large garden with playground for children. For its implementation, the marble sculpture Pyegemalion made by Julio Silva was moved.
