The station was opened in 1998 when Line 14 was first opened. Its architecture is the work of Antoine Grumbach, a different architect from the one who designed the other stations of Line 14. In the hall where one transfers between the two transit lines, the steps of the stairs are arranged in the arc of a circle and are marked with the letters of different humanistic writings.
From the opening of Line 14 until 25 June 2007, this station functioned as the line's southern terminus. Further work extended the line to a new station to the southwest, Olympiades, which opened on 26 June 2007.
