    Stern Seizes the Day: Tour Carpe Diem by Robert A.M. Stern Architects

    The newest addition to La Défense is crystalline - and green.

    By ArchNewsNow
    January 18, 2008

    The skyline of La Défense, once considered by many to be a rather bleak business district on the outskirts of Paris, is undergoing a major transformation. Things really started heating up when the La Defense Management & Development Office (EPAD) launched an ambitious development plan called "La Defense 2006-2015." Striking buildings by Jean-Paul Viguier, Arte Charpentier, Christian de Portzamparc, Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), Arquitectonica, Morphosis, and Valode & Pistre Architectes are either nearing completion or about to break ground.

    Robert A.M. Stern Architects is the latest to join this stellar galaxy of architects. The New York City-based firm was selected (over Jacques Ferrier Architecte and Foster + Partners) to design Tour Carpe Diem, a new office tower for Aviva France, a leading provider of life insurance and pensions savings. The 35-story, 45,000-square-meter (@ 485,000-square-foot) building is another step forward in the evolution of La Défense toward pedestrian-friendly urbanism and environmentally responsible architecture. The building connects the raised esplanade – the “dalle” that continues the axis of the Champs-Elysées through the district – and the urban fabric of the city of Courbevoie to the north.

    Tour Carpe Diem will significantly exceed French regulations for environmentally responsible development. The building's triple-glazed curtain wall incorporates sunshades that respond to the solar orientation of each façade and innovative grilles that provide natural ventilation to reduce dependence on air conditioning. Additional sustainable design strategies include solar water heating, a heat recovery system, high-performance lighting, and rainwater harvesting.

    The project includes a landscaped pedestrian street lined with cafés that leads to an 18-meter-high (60 feet), skylit atrium, and rooftop conference and dining facilities surrounded by a garden and dramatic views of Paris.

    SRA Architects of Châtillon, France, is the associate architect for the project.

    Robert A.M. Stern Architects is a 300-person firm with a 38-year history of experience in residential, commercial, and institutional work, and currently has projects in Europe, Asia, South America, and throughout the United States. Numerous awards and citations for design excellence include National Honor Awards of the American Institute of Architects.

    On the south façade, aluminum and high-performance triple-glazed glass curtain wall integrates horizontal louvers to moderate southern light.

    (Atelier ten for Robert A.M. Stern Architects)

    On the east and west façades, aluminum and high-performance triple-glazed glass curtain wall integrates vertical louvers to moderate low morning and evening sunlight. Silkscreen film increases reflectivity of the glazing without significantly diminishing its transparency. Horizontal vents provide natural ventilation and reduce reliance on air conditioning.

    A little project but I like the design.
    Housing building in Porte d'Orleans.



    Actually there is more and more discution about high-rises projects in inner Paris.
    Paris lacks of housing, office and space. (When I say say I include the dense urban inner suburbs)
    I can add that 50% of office are outdated (build before the 1980's).

    Are you for or agains high-rises in inner Paris ?

    And don't use for argument that these would ruin the city. There is actually many high-rises in inner Paris some are at 500m of Eiffel tower.

    First images: Design for Eiffel Tower visitor platform
    11 March, 2008

    By Thomas Lane

    Sereno Architects doubles visitor capacity at top of Paris' tower as part of 120th anniversary celebrations

    These are the first images of a platform to increase the amount of space for visitors at the top of the Eiffel Tower. It has been designed by French firm Sereno Architects as a competition entry being held by tower operator, Société Nouvelle d'exploitation de la Tour Eiffel.

    The operator wants to build a platform as part of the Eiffel Tower's 120th anniversary celebrations to help get rid of the huge queues of visitors wanting to go up to the top of the tower.

    Sereno Architects design uses a carbon fibre and Kevlar composite to double the amount of space at the top of the tower without adding too much weight.

    The architect says the structure is temporary but as the Eiffel Tower was originally going to be taken down after a year the platform could end up becoming permanent.
