The 10 Most Anticipated Projects of 2024

We look forward to the most anticipated projects planned to open in 2024. The selection of projects spans various scales and programs, from restoration and expansion works such as Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral Restoration, or ZHA's Navi Mumbai Airport in India, to environmentally conscious buildings such as Studio Gang's Hotel in the United States.



1. Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral Restoration

The famous Gothic monument in the center of Paris has been closed to the public since 2019, when a devastating fire engulfed its roof leading to the collapse of the 19th-century spire and the endangerment of its stone vaults. Recently, the interior cleaning of the stonework has been completed, and the reconstructed spire is nearing completion. The Cathedral is set to reopen in December 2024.


2. Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Village / Dominique Perrault

The Olympic Games represent one of the most well-known sporting events worldwide, an event that has important implications for the spatial planning and infrastructure of its hosting city. The next edition will be held in the summer of 2024 in Paris, France. Architect Dominique Perrault is in charge of the master plan and vision for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Village. Hosting a diverse program over an area of 119,000 square meters, the village is designed to become a permanent community in Paris after the closing of the games.

5. Beijing City Library / Snøhetta

The new Beijing Library aims to offer a new type of public space centered on learning, knowledge sharing, and open discussions, as well as celebrating the cultural richness of Beijing.
