Photographer's Note

I thought about doing something differnet with Le Grande Arche and I must admit that I do not have a single overview of the whole arch. The pigeon is pure luck, I did not see it until I got home.

The arch is enormous and built in the 1980´s construction boom to symbolize the modern Paris. The cubic structures stands at the end of the highrise area at La Defense and acts as eyecatcher that is seen far away.

The walls contain offices and the roof is a terrace where tourists can enjoy the view of Paris. It also houses some exhibition areas and museums but I have not been there so I can´t tell you more than that.
