Mario Cucinella's design for Villejuif Léo Lagrange metro station was completed in 1998, when RATP (Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens) held a competition for redevelopment of ten stations, each centring around a theme that commemorated the close of the century in some way.

In honour of the great athlete and former minister of the French Republic Lagrange, the project focused on the theme of sports, and every aspect of the station was redesigned - from lighting to platforms, entrances and internal passageways.
Architects, set designers, graphic artists and organisers of sports events worked together under RATP's instructions to make the most of all the spaces in the station, from the entrance on the mezzanine level to the raised platforms.
