Tour Légende (originally Tour EDF at La Défense) // Pei Cobb Freed & Partners Architects LLP

Text description provided by the architects.

This 41-story office tower occupies a prominent site directly adjoining the Dalle of La Défense —an elevated pedestrian plaza centered on the monumental axis that extends eastward from the nearby Grande Arche through the historic heart of Paris.
The building is positioned to reflect this axial system while respecting the view corridor from the historic center.

The office floors rise above a lobby at the plaza level and two lower floors of amenities, including a garden restaurant.
The distinctive form of Tour EDF originates with the corollary obligation to enhance the quality of public space and public life.
Hence the tower is shaped in such a way that it does not stand aloof from the “Dalle” but instead makes an engaging gesture toward the Parvis de La Défense.

The carved prow of the building creates a memorable gathering place, where passersby are invited to pause and enjoy the view from a raised platform beneath a sheltering circular canopy clad, like the tower, in stainless steel and glass.
