Ariane (Générale)


Tour Ariane is a boxy building, but I like it. It's an elegant building with very nice designed windows.
Furthermore, the building doesn't end abruptly, like other boxes (for instance Tour CL), but the building's top differs from the body.

The building was completed in 1975. The architect (Jean de Mailly, who also designed Tour Roussel-Hoechst, former Nobel) improved the flexibility of the interior planning. The tower allows variably sized offices, most of which have direct exposure to daylight.

This is my favorite view.
This is an old picture. The building carries its former name Société Générale.

It looks pretty massive from this side.
