Interesting perspective of a Russian that we here in the West never get to hear. We only get the selfish point of view from our newspapers/media: the headlines are always "them rich Russians are taking over our companies or buying our high-value property, our sports-clubs... etc etc"

There is a whole other different point of view, namely the view of the Russian people, which goes something like "our rich Russians are making money in our motherland, but they're not investing/spending enough of it here!"

“Pushed Slab” energy efficient office building / MVRDV



MVRDV presents the design for the Pushed Slab office building at ZAC Gare de Rungis in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, France. The 19.000 m2 building will be one of the first low energy buildings realised in France; with low energy consumption and an energy production of appr. 200.000kWh per year. Construction of the 35 million Euro building commissioned by French project developer ICADE Promotion is expected to start 2011.
The Pushed Slab is located between two completely different urban grids: the dense city fabric of blocks and streets in the North and the loose urban fabric in the south with its clear defined and straightforward infrastructure. The design is based on the requested office program and the energy requirements. The project combines proven energy efficiency technologies with individual office floors and outside spaces such as patios, balconies and a garden. The building is highly flexible offering three cores and a central lobby; it can be rented out to one or various tenants without structural changes.



The building is located on a former rail embankment of approximately 4.150m ². The volume follows the site restrictions, a slab shaped volume of 150 m long and 21 m wide. An opening in the volume preserves the view of a historic building. To create this urban window and to enhance the urban quality of the neighbourhood, the slab is “pushed” until it breaks, then twisted and pushed to the south. This pushing act creates a distortion of the floors, offering multiple terraces which can be directly accessed from the work areas as well as from the external staircases. The urban window offers a large terrace on the second level. The terrace and the balconies will be furnished with trees planted in large pots, offering employees a friendly environment to relax.



The building has two faces: a calm side in dialogue with the urban fabric of the north side of Paris, and a more dynamic side facing south, rectangular to the boulevard. The building is wrapped in a skin of wood. The windows form a rhythmic ribbon, offering optimal sunning and light control of the inner spaces. To contribute to the sustainable development and taking the impact of deforestation into account, certified wood from France will be used. The climate is controled by natural ventilation; 1500m2 solar panels on the roof provide renewable energy and a grey water circuit will be applied. Blinds will be integrated in the south facade and in the cuts. The building will be insulated from the outside in order to reduce thermal bridges. The accumulation of these proven reliable techniques results in a highly efficient low energy building which leads to an energy consumption of 49 kWh per m2 per year.



The project is part of the ZAC Gare de Rungis development, according to the mayor of the arrondissement Jerome Coumet “The first Eco-quarter of Paris, the first presented and the first to be completed.” The building is designed by MVRDV in cooperation with local architect North by North West, in a joint effort with the engineering and advisory firms ARCOBA (Saint Denis), Casso, Terrell, Vanguard and Alto, all located in Paris.

ICADE Promotion is a major player in the French property market and a listed real-estate company, subsidiary of the Caisse des Dépôts, which carries out business activities in property investment, development and related services in the offices, business parks, shopping centres, public-healthcare amenities and housing sectors.

This would be taken from Notre Dame de Paris cathedral.

On a map, if you draw a line crossing the Grande Arche and the top of the Grand Palais (with the French flag), you will also cross Notre Dame de Paris cathedral. As you can see here.

Moreover, you can see the Pont Neuf bridge in the foreground, that proves that the pictures was taken from Ile de la Cité.

After all these years waiting, the top of the reborn Axa Tower is finally unveiled! The pictures below show the top of the tower completed. It stands 225 meters (738 feet) above street level. I saw it from Porte Maillot this week, and it looked really impressive (until recently it was still not that impressive, but the special finish cladding at the top gives it a very unique look now as seen from Porte Maillot, even better in reality than in these pictures).







PS : Fiou ! On a échappé à un remake du ratage de la coiffe T1.

I note the 2,559.8 m² of commercial space.
There is a big store or a big café/restaurant planned inside the tower.

Even though I was aware of this building permit for a few days, it's still a pleasure to see it .

Some people don't like Phare (perhaps jealous...), but I personally am keen on it, it's so organic, unusual, unique, I love it and look forward to seeing it stand proudly in the sky of La Défense, gonna be an iconic skyscraper...I now can't wait to see some new renderings!

Just a reminder for those not knowing what Phare looks like:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brisavoine, if you have some more spare time in the next few days, would you mind taking a picture of Majunga's building permit as well?You'd be an ! Apparently it has also been displayed very recently as mentioned by our comrade Mohamed6:
