La Défense

The site is marked with a specific shape – genius loci – catching all lights with the facetted tower. Carpe Diem Tower is the link with Courbevoie. Rain water is used for watering the interior landscape. Facades are standardized yet money savers and an elegant curtain wall. Its geometry displays light tricks and provides spectacular sightseeings from all floors. The tower presents itself both ways glittering and shaded, dealing permanently with shade and light thanks to the randomly angled facettes.
