La Defense Tower

In Nanterre, at the western extremity of the district of La Défense, this project fits into an exiguous triangular site and figures as the prow of the Valmy district. Unique and autonomous, the triangular tower unifies the Société Générale’s block, optimizing the open spaces and preserving the light and sights in the existing towers.
