Tour Triangle, also known as Projet Triangle, or simply Triangle, is a proposed skyscraper located in the exhibition site Parc des Expositions de la Porte de Versailles, Paris, France. Designed by the Swiss agency Herzog & de Meuron, it will take the shape of a 180m tall glass pyramid with trapezoid base, wide from one side and narrow from another.
Tour Triangle is a triangle-shaped building that culminates at 180 metres.
Swiss architects’agency Herzog & De Meuron, notably known for the 'Bird's Nest' Olympic stadium in Beijing, were chosen to design what would become the first skyscraper to be built in “Intra muros” Paris since the construction of Tour Montparnasse.
Being 42 floors high, it will accommodate about 5 000 employees and host offices, street-level shops, panoramic observatories and a panoramic restaurant on the top floor.
Sustainability and environmental quality
Triangle will be a sustainable skyscraper: It is designed to achieve a high energy performance and reach the HQE and BREEAM certifications. It will favor natural light, and generate four times less co2 than a standard building of its size.
