Taillibert, Roger to use his first name, a living master of the concrete shroud, creator, amongst others, of Parc des Princes, Paris, Stade Olympique, Montreal and the Khalifa Stadium in Doha is also the architect behind the Chamonix swimming pool and the Ecole Nationale de Ski et Alpinisme.

Where future lead climbers sweat blood and tears before finding the right way out of this rampant building with its towers that stack up nostalgia for the 1970s.
