"The Grand Arch and La Defense" Grande Arche de La Defense Tip by Imbi

Grande Arche de La Defense, Paris: 34 reviews and 49 photos


a few kilometers northwest from the Arch de Triumph on Avenue Des Champs Elysees. The La Defense complex of futuristic office buildings is the most ambitious town planning project ever taken in the Paris region. The project began around 1960, and now there are over 48 towers providing office space for over 900 companies. This was the second of my three favorite places in Paris. I felt a great sense of optimism for modern mankind expressed in the architecture of these shiny new buildings
