Architecture La Defense
posted by July 15 at 12:55 PMon
We see that the best buildings have in their design no humans in mind. All the better if the work is alien, monstrous, indifferent—anything more other than what we are already. A work that strives for the inhuman strives to be closer to the truth, which consistently turns out to be inhuman.
La Defense is an office-building that lies in a small business-park and is partly surrounded by houses. The outline of the building follows the capricious borders of the parcel. The ground-plan of La Defense contains two volumes which are different in length and height.
