The Paris Triangle, A Bold New Look For The Paris Skyline
A few months ago, I mentioned potential plans to change the Paris skyline. Now the first project, a 50-story glass pyramid is moving into more serious planning stages. The move comes after officials voted to drop a ban on high-rise buildings. Le Projet Triangle at Porte de Versailles was designed by Swiss team Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron who designed the Olympic stadium in Beijing. The tower will have offices, a conference center, 400-bedroom hotel and restaurants and cafes. it will be surrounded by parks, gardens and shops. The building is planned to be around 590 feet high which will make the third highest building in Paris. The tower will run on solar and wind power and is set for completion in 2012.
