Facts

  • A light-weight concrete based on expanded-clay aggregate was used to lighten the cantilever of the wings (12 meters).
  • The building's 30,000 tonnes stand on 14 rollers that enable it to absorb the variations in dilation that can be as much as 2 centimeters from summer to winter.
  • The three-prong shape was thus imposed, as was the plan as defined by its owner, the reinsurance firm SCOR.
  • The two topmost floors are done as blind arcades, a finishing touch that is often lacking in skyscrapers.
  • The curve of the gables and the moulding of the elevation correspond to the CNIT across the way.
  • Its primary material, Carrara marble, was also used for the La Grande Arche and lends a unique architectural style to the esplanade in contrast to the surrounding glass-encased towers.
  • Using the foundations of a hotel that was never completed, Jean Balladur designed this 16-storey tower.
  • This building lies between Tour EDF and Centre Commercial Les Quatre Temps.
