Facts

  • There are no windows in the corners because they are occupied by load-bearing pillars.
  • Located on the edge of the Ring Road at La Défense 5, this matte-grey anodized aluminum tower features a hollowed-out semi-cylinder between its two sides, with the top floors cantilevered over empty space.
  • The two extremities bracketing the hollowed curve are slightly asymmetrical.
  • This tower was designed for IBM with two elevator shafts (the extremities) linked by a horizontal circulation space (the hollowed-out center).
  • The overhanging upper floors form exclusive corner offices reserved for the corporate directors.
  • A round pedestal forms the base of the tower. Its accessible parts are clad in stone.
