Batignolles redevolpment area
Located in the 17th arrondissement of inner Paris near the track of Saint Lazare station
Inner Paris

  • 0.43 km²
  • 3,500 appartements (50% of social housing)
  • 12,000 new inhabitants
  • 100,000 m² of offices
It should be an eco friendly district

How could they screw up one side of the tower so badly...because the flat side looks absolutely horrible?

New little tower!

A truly original proposal has been put forward in Paris France for a structure which is to be named Antismog.

Although it is perhaps the ultimate in environmentally friendly design it looks like our French cousins were smoking some of the grass that theoretically covers parts of this design whilst they were drawing it up.

If given the go ahead the scheme will be located on Canal de l'Ourcq, the futuristic design comes from architectural outfit Vincent Callebaut Architectures.

Looking somewhat like an energy saving light bulb and a mouldy spaceship, the organically designed scheme has two components namely a tower and a pod like structure which looks like it has docked on the railway bridge spanning the canal.

The pod which will be known as the Solar Drop will have a 250 square metre photovoltaic blue roof which will capture the sun and convert it into energy for the pod, the main body of the pod is made up of polyester fibres which is strengthened along its main profiles with steel banding. The whole structure is then covered in titanium dioxide which reacts with ultra violet light to reduce pollution.

As an auto cleaning building it will also be able to absorb and recycle by means of photo catalytic technology the smog cloud generated by the huge amounts of traffic on the near by Parisian belt, hence the name Antismog - clever eh?

Other technologies allow the pod to be totally energy sufficient while two planted arches over the roof of the pod will collect rainwater which will service the needs of the of the exhibition, meeting and café space within the pod which are arranged around a plant purified lagoon.

The tower will reach 45 metres in height and is a wind tower. The core of the tower will be covered in digital screens which will constantly beam the news out whilst other panels will be tactile in nature. A ribbon like banister unfurls itself down the length of the tower the main body of which is moves in accordance with the direction of the dominant wind.

A second polyester fibre structure will be covered with greenery and punctuated with slits which hold the wind turbines. At the top of the tower a suspended public garden will offer spectacular views of Paris.

As a prototype in environmental building and technologies the project could lead the way forward for future sustainable building worldwide but only if it gets approval, which for now remains to be seen.

Pretty cool but what is the building's primary function? apart from what looks like a restaurant inside the pod, i don't get it? Looks pointless to me otherwise from the 'look at me' statement.
got any more info on that?

Careful not to confuse the tiny City (capital C) of Paris with the entire city (lower-case c) of Paris. There are skyscrapers planned and u/c in Paris, just not in the City of Paris so far.

A big office building u/c, Unfortunely it is not a skyscraper but a groundscraper.

River Ouest building in Becon near la Defense.
63,400 m² (682,431 sq ft) of office






The view of la Defense from this building

Exactly the kind of things that I hate seing built, it's un-urban, ugly, and a huge waste of space.

Picture taken very recently by a coworker of French forumer Cyril. Granite Tower appears now completely in the skyline (to the
left of the pic). Heightening work is going on on Axa Tower (to the right of the pic).
