Paris La Defense - Grande Arche

Buy this photo on gettyimages :


The Grande Arche de la Defense is a monument and building in the business district of La Defense to the west of Paris, France. The Arche is almost a perfect cube; it has been suggested that the structure looks like a four-dimensional hypercube projected onto the three-dimensional world. It has a prestressed concrete frame covered with glass and Carrara marble from Italy.

In addition, the Arche is placed so that it forms a secondary axis with the two highest buildings in Paris, the Tour Eiffel and the Tour Montparnasse.
