Faits

  • The architects were inspired by the the famous black monolith of Stanley Kubrick's "2001: a Space Odyssey".
  • Completed in 1974, Tour Areva features a central core housing the express lifts and its open-plan floors - unobstructed interior space - that were very popular at the time of construction.
  • The load-bearing outer walls of reinforced concrete have been clad in black granite and tinted glass with barely visible black sections. The fixed windows get taller as they reach the top; it is an "anti-taper perspective" intended to reduce the impression of foreshortening for the viewer below.
  • Areva is a symbol of La Defense's "second generation" towers: three to four times bigger than those of the "first generation".
  • Tour Areva is a smooth, black monolith; its facade looks like congealed glass.
  • The 44th floor, perched at 150 meters above the ground, held Gianni Agnelli's luxurious flat when, as President and Chairman of FIAT, his company owned the building (until 1995).
