I don't think the purpose of the Canopée is to protect from rain (Paris is not on a miserable rainy island) but to offer new commercial spaces in the forum (the roof is not just based on posts, many shops will be expanded or created) and offer a shady corner for decking bars and restaurants on sunny days (do not forget that Paris is the most visited city in the world, and spaces terrace sheltered from the sun are very expensive in summer).

@Avemano or Cochise or Milo...

Guys, could you possibly update Foster's building currently U/C in La Garenne Colombes please (it's called 'La Défense Autrement'*)? I think it really is worth it...many thanks in advance!

* what a daft name...

The post didn't mention that, so I had no clue. Sorry then. Not much of an improvement either, but we'll see...

I passed near that on Thursday and didn't know what it was. It looks good and it's almost finished.
