Les Halles de Paris, located in the heart of the French capital, is the site of the city’s traditional wholesale fresh food market, dating back to 1183. Following modernisation works in recent decades, it is now an important commercial and cultural centre, and has the city’s most used rail station, serving 750,000 travellers on an average weekday.

In a development project in 2012, new buildings were constructed with a spectacular curvilinear canopy roof connecting them and covering the open-air central area between them. The canopy (La Canopée des Halles), in particular, is an architectural masterpiece and a fine feat of engineering.
