The centre of Cayenne, the capital of French Guiana, is designed as a classic rectangular grid of streets and connected to all surrounding areas by several roads. The connection of these roads leads to an efficient infrastructure which comprises the competition area in the immediate vicinity of the Mont Baduel. Development areas considering the respective topographic conditions and open spaces for agricultural and recreational use are found all along the connecting roads. A “functional line” of facilities like schools, businesses and cinemas spreading over these areas emphasises the spatially strong-weighted, axially aligned centre of the region.
