In an effort to make the La Défense neighborhood of Paris more attractive, this winning design by Ateliers Jean Nouvel, was selected over dozens of other firms.
This 71 floor tower will include offices, hotel, residential and retail spaces. The design is basically made up of four blocks piled one on top of the other with atriums forming huge windows, each facing in alternate directions.
“This project’s ambition is to create a strong hub at the heart of the Greater Paris region, creating a significant draw at the same time as establishing a relationship between the project and its natural and built-up environment, embodying the various temporal considerations which strengthen the links between a project and its environs.”
