La Défense et son esplanade

Europe’s largest business district extends over three municipalities in the Paris region – Courbevoie, Puteaux and Nanterre. Corporate headquarters and office buildings predominate in the district, where you can see the highest skyscrapers in France. This modern landscape is dotted with 60 art works, including significant pieces such as:
Shelomo Selinger’s “La danse”, a series of 35 sculpted planting boxes spreading over the 3,600-sq.m. expanse of the place basse on the Esplanade Charles-de-Gaulle.
- Alexander Calder’s “L'Araignée Rouge”, a 15-metre-high sculpture a short distance from the Total skyscraper. Yaacov Agam’s monumental fountain.
- A Miró sculpture.
- Takis’s pool dotted with “traffic light” poles, marking the eastern end of the pedestrian concourse.
- Raymond Moretti’s “La Cheminée” – a 32-metre-high “chimney” made up of hundreds of coloured tubes.
- César Baldaccini’s 12-metre sculpture “Le pouce”.
