Grand Stade Lille Métropole



Grand Stade Lille Metropole’s dynamic façade was designed to deliver an unprecedented media experience to fans and passersby. 

Unveiled in August 2012, Grand Stade Lille Métropole’s dynamic façade was designed to deliver an unprecedented media experience to fans and passersby. Created by architects Valode & Pistre and Pierre Ferret and clad in an elegant, semi-transparent IMAGIC WEAVE media façade measuring 2046 square meters, the Grand Stade Lille Métropole’s exterior melds HAVER & BOECKER’s stainless steel mesh together with Traxon LEDs converting the building façade into a unique, transparent canvas for vivid, large-scale media.

Paired with Video Micro Converters (VMCs) and the system of a Lighting Control Engine fx (LCE-fx), the creative and sustainable lighting solution offers three customized areas of varying resolution, each catering to the stadium’s communication needs: an extensive background for large-scale dynamic light shows; an elongated “ticker” style screen to communicate scores and other text; a tight pitch area with higher resolution for videos and advertisements.

The intelligent control system enables all three areas to be controlled separately to play differing content, or together to form a single theme show, seamlessly integrated and linked at all times. As a result, the Grand Stade Lille Métropole is fully equipped to serve high-profile sporting events and also succeeds as a piece of modern architecture that thrives beyond games with a clear understanding of its multifunctional role as an urban icon.

Remark: “Grand Stade Lille Métropole” was renamed as “Stade Pierre-Mauroy” on 21 June 2013.
