On the map above :
- in green are buildings currently under construction
- in blue are revealed projects, those which have been announced with renderings.
- in orange are unrevealed projects, those which are rumoured but haven't been announced yet.


The Tour Carpe Diem (orange n°4) has just been announced today. So it should be updated as "blue" on the map. Here's the rendering of the building :

Dépêche n° 2361 - Mardi 15 janvier 2008

Suite à l’acquisition le 2 juillet 2007 de la Tour CB 21- ex Gan - située à la Défense pour 486 M€ (voir notre dépêche n° 1834), Foncière des Régions a obtenu, le 8 janvier, l’agrément bureaux de la part de la préfecture de région. Cet agrément autorise la foncière à accroître de 25 000 m2 HON, ce qui permettra de réaliser une tour de près de 100 000 m2 HON après restructuration. Cette étape conforte le projet de restructuration de la tour et s’inscrit dans le calendrier prévu par les équipes de Foncière des régions afin de livrer, début 2011, une tour de nouvelle génération et certifiée Haute Qualité Environnementale.
« Foncière des régions a constitué, dès l’acquisition, une équipe expérimentée et a désigné en concertation avec l’Epad, l’architecte Jean MAS de Ateliers 234, pour réaliser un projet s’inscrivant dans le plan de renouveau de la Défense et répondant aux besoins des grands utilisateurs », souligne la foncière.

In clear, for english and even french speaker. Tour CB31 (275m) is approved. :)

When I first saw the exterior rendering of Tour Carpe Diem, I thought it would be a nice tower.... but now that I see those renderings of the roof, base, and interior, I am in awe! Are they sure Robert AM Stern designed that? ;)


As for GAN, considering it still looks great after three decades and being a 70s design, it really seems to me that it is a quality and timeless design now. The new plan looks good but not worth it in place of a classic tower like GAN.

An article about Carpe Diem tower

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.
http://www.archnewsnow.com/features/images/Feature0240_08x.jpg
(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.

very nice update.

I love the top of this new building (ex Aurore) but what a shame is isn't built on the spot across the pedestrian area where now those beige hotel is located.

From the plane, the skyscrapers of LD still don't rival the Eiffel Tower or the Tour Montparnasse.

nouvels tower is amazing...at first i thought it was abit dull, but those atriums really are something. if they end up looking anything like they do in the renders i will be absolutly gobsmacked! still if anyone can carry it off it has to be nouvel, his detailing is secound to none! i had the same doubts about tour agbar, but that is fucking stunning! i think a good choice :) although i would have loved to see fosters tower going up...

i have a question though. i know paris is feeling the credit crunch in a very similar way to london, tour signal is mixed use so this must help, but whos funding it and how strong are there finances? land sec. in london is one of the biggest real estate companies in europe and they're playing it cautious atm as are british land. unless this tower has real solid backing or a pre let wont the world wide economic slow down effect it?

anyway i have to say, with a hint of jealousy, that la defence is going look sweet in a few years... not that we haven't got our own eye candy soon to be rising over hear :)

I don't really have any info about that, but I have the feeling that the credit crunch will be over long before construction even begins at the site.
All the major projects in La Défense have started late in the recent past. I don't think that one will be different.
