LA GRANDE ARCHE DE LA DÉFENSE. PARIS
CLOSE SHOT OF THE SIDE OF THE GRANDE ARCHE
I was looking for graphics featuring the side facade.

In the WS a wider view of detail.


GRANDE ARCHE
Undoubtedly, the most famous building in the district of La Défense, is the Grande Arche (Grande Arche). Otto Von Spreckelsen devised this monumental arch of steel and glass in response to the idea of extending the historic hub, born in the Louvre, extends along the Champs Elysees, past the Arc de Triomphe and reaches the Neuilly Bridge to the outskirts of inner Paris.

The arch was opened in 1989, on the occasion of the bicentenary of the Revolution. The structure is approximately a cube, with 110 meters high, 108 wide and 112 deep, built in Carrara marble and granite glass plates coated with a weight of 300 thousand tons ... Panoramic lifts provide access to the viewpoint set on high.
