  Parc des Princes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The current Parc des Princes, designed by architect Roger Taillibert, was opened in June 1972 and is a true football/rugby stadium with no track around the pitch.
Taillibert's all-seater design has proven in retrospect to be well ahead of its time, requiring only cosmetic improvements to meet vastly increased comfort and safety regulations through the 1990s and early 2000s.
Having acquired PSG on April 10, 2006, the international real estate investment firm Colony Capital has announced a plan to upgrade the Parc des Princes, including the building of luxury amenities and a capacity expansion to 54,000.

 Stade Olympique - BR Bullpen
The stadium had been purpose-built for the 1976 Summer Olympic Games, based on a futuristic design by French architect Roger Taillibert (born in 1926), whose only other project at the time, aside from designing a couple of competition swimming pools, was supervising the modernisation of the Parc-des-Princes, Paris' football stadium.
The RIO decided that Taillibert's design was unworkable and chose to leave the roof in place with no further attempt to operate it as a retractable structure.
The final nail was driven in on June 27, 1991, when strong winds created a huge gash in the kevlar, and the roof had to be removed for the remainder of the season.

Questions, questions, questions: every conceivable detail was combed through with Taillibert's staff making notes, producing papers and rough drawings; it was incredible, and as the hours ticked away I realised that this Frenchman of whom I had little knowledge was an architect with courageous vision.
With Drapeau as the political leader of the operation and Roger Rousseau, a diplomat and once a leading figure in Canada's international trade administration, as president of the Organising Committee, the upper echelon of the structure appeared to have stability.
Not -surprisingly, the view of Taillibert and his architects who were partly operating from Paris was that the stadium could and should be completed in time - with the caveat that the trade unions be brought into line; their guerrilla action had to be stopped.

 Taillibert speaks - The Summer of '76: Montreal's Olympic Games - CBC Archives
He derides Drapeau for demanding a grand "pyramid builder" like Taillibert, instead of hiring another architect who would do a simpler, less expensive job.
"Taillibert is the kind of architect who built the cathedrals of ancient times," said Drapeau.
Taillibert was also responsible for the designs of the Olympic velodrome (cycling venue) and swimming pools.

 ESPN.com: MLB - Merron: The Disastrous 'Big Owe'   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
In 1973, Taillibert, the "Michelangelo of Concrete," described the roof this way: "A strong synthetic fabric attached to cables suspended from the tower will cover the central opening, folding and unfolding easily and quickly." A more pithy description, by MacLean's magazine, said the roof lifted off "like a handkerchief pulled up by a string."
Taillibert, who now designs stadiums around the world (though, notably, not in North America), was happy to oblige.
What the good baseball fans of Montreal got instead was a recurring nightmare that began when construction workers went on strike before the stadium opened for the 1976 Olympics.
