The Zénith de Lille (still known as Zénith Arena) is a multi-purpose indoor arena in Lille, France. Imagined by the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas with Cecil Balmond and inaugurated in 1994, the Zénith Arena is a part of the cultural complex Lille Grand Palais which includes two other spaces: a Congress Center and Exhibition halls. Rem Koolhaas surrounded himself with Renz van Luxemburg for the acoustic studies, dUCKS scéno for the scenography and Arup Group for the engineering studies. Its ability to seat up to 7,000 people makes it one of the largest venues in Lille. The closest métro is Lille Grand Palais.
