We should deal that the reference of this kind of building (group all the offices services of defense) is the Pentagone

Forum des Halles

Big renovation (> 1 billion €) of the area includes :

- renovation and extension of the Forum des Halles mall, biggest underground mall in Europe.
- renovation of the Châtelet-Les Halles railway station (métropolitain + RER). The pole is the first underground station in the world in number of passengers and number of trains.

The Canopée under construction above the Forum des Halles





New developments for the underground station of Châtelet-Les Halles :

A new access at Place Marguerite de Navarre which leads directly to the station without going through the mall


4 escalators to lead up to the station, 4 floors down


Because of the foundations of the Canopée, the ceilings of the station will be lowered, the whole structure of the station had to be redesigned

Maquette of the projet






Please kill me if I loose myself in this mille feuille

A crane at floor -4 in avril 2013



Work in progress in the station in juin 2013 (big mess with the new height of the structure)

<><><><
<><><><

...as opposed to its honeycomb structure when seen from above!!!
Thats' why I say la ruche or le nid d'abeilles.

and also because the bee is the emblem of the first Empire

"La ruche" is not bad.
Also, with 9 000 people running everywhere in the corridors to plan the defense strategy of the country, it is well found !
Plus, the architects said (on the official website) that the structure of the building was designed to let communication between the different bureaux of the Ministry, and the patios to let people breathe a little (as the holes do in a ruche).
I vote for "la ruche"

The only thing I hope is that the roof will be the same as the renders, smooth.

Yes it has, even twice (in its centre, & the upper layer as well)!



The Hexagon rocks, it both refers to the Pentagon & the shape of our country. The "ruche" doesn't sound right to me...each to their own...

Perso, I prefer the Hexagone. Firstly because it remember the France's form, secondly because this name will be similar with the Pentagone, and last but not least: There are 2 bigs Hexagone in this building.

Mention adoptée !
