La Défense Tips (20)

La Grande Arch is an awesome...

Favorite thing La Grande Arch is an awesome example of modern architecture! The walls of this gigantic open cube rise shear in seeming defiance of gravity. With its pre-stressed concrete frame, faced in glass and white Carrara marble, the building weighs 300,000 tons and is carried on 12 enormous piles sunk in the below-ground area. The cathedral of Notre-Dame with its spire could fit into the space between the walls of the arch. The south vertical wall houses government ministry offices and the north wall major French and international companies. The 3-story thick roof is occupied by the International Foundation for Human Rights. The vertical poles towards the left on the interior of the arch support an elevator which can be taken to the roof. The front steps are a great place to hang out, eat lunch, and enjoy the sights of La Défense.

The Grand Arch and La Défense...

Favorite thing The Grand Arch and La Défense is a few kilometers northwest from the Arch de Triumph on Avenue Des Champs Elysees. The La Défense complex of futuristic office buildings is the most ambitious town planning project ever taken in the Paris region. The project began around 1960, and now there are over 48 towers providing office space for over 900 companies. The area reminded me much of the financial district on the south end of Manhattan in New York.

La Defense

This business...

Favorite thing La Defense

This business district is like a futuristic universe
where form and content meet in beauty : Active and lively during the day, deathly silent at night. Not just office buildings, but a variety of things to see. Besides the different international trade fairs, exhibitions, concerts or theatrical performances that take place in the CNIT or on the roof of the Arche, you can find a wide variety of restaurants, stores, and outdoor shows. And, for several years, on June 21st, the official Holiday of Music 'Fête de la Musique', La Défense hosts a great music festival that includes all sorts of side shows using light and water.
