Tour Triangle


Tour Triangle
Tour Triangle, also known as Projet Triangle, or simply Triangle, is a skyscraper to be built in the exhibition site Parc des Expositions de la Porte de Versailles, Paris, France. Designed by the Swiss agency Herzog & de Meuron, it will take the shape of a 180 metres (590 ft) tall glass pyramid with trapezoid base, wide from one side and narrow from another. It will be the only tall building built in central Paris since the 1973 Montparnasse tower.
Tour Triangle
Tour Triangle will be a triangle-shaped building that culminates at 180 metres.
The Swiss architectural agency Herzog & De Meuron, who had previously designed the 'Bird's Nest' Olympic stadium in Beijing, was chosen to design what would become the first skyscraper to be built in “Intra muros” Paris since the 1973 construction of Tour Montparnasse.
In April 2011, VIPARIS, the project owner, was given the green light for Triangle. The tower site is located next to Porte de Versailles in the “Parc des Expositions” (southwest of Paris).
The plans for the construction of the tower were initially rejected by Paris City councillors on Monday November 17, 2014. A second ballot on the matter by the Paris City Council on June 30, 2015 approved the building.
Tour Triangle
Being 42 floors high, it would accommodate about 5,000 employees and host offices, street-level shops, panoramic observatories and a panoramic restaurant on the top floor.
Tour Triangle
Tour Triangle was to be a sustainable skyscraper: It was designed to achieve a high energy performance and reach the HQE and BREEAM certifications. It would favor natural light, and generate four times less CO2 than a standard building of its size. (via Wikipedia)
