Yes they are social housings (1,607 apartments in the 18 towers) and personally, although the design is unique, I don't like these building : ugly !!!


BTW their official name is Tours Aillaud (name of their achitect: Emile Aillaud) !

Those buildings looked like they're damaged by an aerial bombing. Really awful!
