Facts

  • This building was the first office tower in the La Défense business district.
  • The curved glass used on the corners was unknown in France at the time of construction, and was made specially by an American glazier.
  • Architect Mailly was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's S.C. Johnson Research Tower, built in 1950.
  • The facade is composed of articulated panels specially designed by Jean Prouvé to allow its metal structure to move freely without damaging the windows or wall coverings.
