Roger Taillibert built two sports and cultural centres on the Kirchberg in Luxembourg. Opened in 1982, the Olympic Pool is marked by its characteristic boat-like roofs, composed of concrete shells. For the neighbouring National Sports and Cultural Centre, named d'Coque, for which the first sod was turned on 15 December 1997, Roger Taillibert used a similar code of forms for the roof. This time he abandoned the concrete shells for laminated timber. The copper roofs (with a surface area of 20800 m2) cover the six shells of the ensemble. The multi-purpose centre was inaugurated on 8 June 2002.
