* About Station F
The Halle Freyssinet, renamed Station F, is a remarkable prestressed reinforced concrete building built between 1927 and 1929 by engineer Eugène Freyssinet. An innovative technique for the installation of concrete has enabled this hall to be equipped with an exceptionally light supporting structure, which has earned it a place on the Inventory of Historical Monuments since 2012.
Initially connected to the rail network of the Austerlitz station and intended to house train-truck transhipment operations, this giant start-up accelerator is located at the heart of the urban renewal sector of the Paris Rive Gauche ZAC, below the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris.
310 metres long and 58 metres wide, Station F consists of three parallel naves made of thin prestressed concrete vaults, the thickness of which can be reduced to less than 5 cm at the ridge. The presence of suspended awnings overhanging the building allows the extreme structural finesse of the whole by serving as a counterweight, thus allowing the concrete skeleton to be optimized and reduced to the sole expression of the forces that pass through it. A fascinating place!
