I personally love this place & certainly will love it even more if our main projects finally see the light...
I always stay there when I visit. Tomorrow I ll be there too and can take pictures hopefully

thank you minato ku for your picture
i am happy that the tour EUROPE has not changed because this building is a heritage of the 60s/70s.

a preserved restored building like EUROPE shows the longevity the age of LA DEFENSE.. and the low concrete residential building between cb16 and aurore in full concrete too.

LA DEFENSE needs buildings like initiale, atlantique, ariane, manhattan for prouving its 50/60 years architecture history.

I would not have destroyed the tower AURORE it is a symbolic building of this district and building AIR2 in front.....

AND Why did they destroy the volutes the exgrowths of the ATHENA facade in front of the pond Takis?

Destroy the inventiveness of the architect Vasconi......for a banal facade now.

I was angry few years ago when I returned to see BEAUBOURG after its internal renovation and I was disgusted by seeing that they had destroyed all the internal layout(organization)from the seventies.....in orange yellow colors etc...very psychedelic.

Because never any interior design will equal that of the seventies... and i hope that they will preserve the seventies architecture at the beaugrenelle district like the psychedelic mosaics or some great colored facades from the seventies.

Tour Europe looks great from up close. A great brutalist skyscraper (Paris seems to have the best skyscrapers in this style, including some nice ones outside La Defense.)
La efense also has some great International-Style buildings that I hope won't ever be edited, like Areva and Winterthur.

One of the low-rise concrete buildings is getting a reclad, isn't it?

I mean a very low rise one. Like 5 stories or something, I think it's near Majunga but I'm not sure...

Blanche isn't really concrete
