Grande Arche de la Défense
A glass and metal cube pierced in the heart, the Arch of La Défense integrates the architecture of the neighbourhood with majesty and audacity.
/// The access to the top of the arch is definitely closed to the public. ///
Veritable architectural jewel, la Grande Arche de la Défense is presented in the form of a giant cube with the centre cut out. An audacious architectural feat for a monumental sculpture. The arch doesn't content itself with shading the nearby offices...
On the last floor, you can visit the Museum of Technology, where the typewriter has already found a home-as well as the first personal computer ever invented!
Opened in 2008, the museum presents a collection of technical advancements, including the cellular phone of today... And for tomorrow?
At the top of the arch, a restaurant awaits with a panoramic view of Paris. The location of the arch defines a strategic position, linking it to the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe, that can only be seen from the top... Brave souls can take the glass lift for an interesting perspective.
