Tour Les Poissons is a 42-storey, 129.5 m (425 ft) skyscraper completed in 1970 in Courbevoie, near La Défense business district, west of Paris, France. In 2006, the spire, a 22 m (72 ft) cylindrical concrete barometer that glowed, green or blue indicating atmospheric pressure, was removed from the roof.

The design of Tour Les Poissons includes a white tower joined with a smaller black tower. The lower thirty floors of the building hold residential apartments, and the upper ten floors are dedicated to offices. The difference in usages is visible from outside, as the office floors have wider windows.
