This business district, mainly surrounded by towers, headquarters and offices, is home to the tallest and most emblematic towers in France: Coeur Défense, EDF, Granite, First ... In the middle of this modern landscape, on the esplanade, 60 works of art enliven this frame. Among the most important are Shelomo Selinger's "The Dance", a set of 35 carved planters, stretching over the 3,600 m² of the Lower Esplanade Charles-de-Gaulle square; Alexander Calder's "Red Spider", a 15-meter tall sculpture located not far from the Total Tower; "The monumental fountain" of Yaacov Agam; "Fantastic Characters" by Joan Miró; "Takis Basin" piquet of enigmatic signals closes the slab to the East; Raymond Moretti's "Chimney" 32 meters high and made up of hundreds of colored tubes; "The Thumb" by Cesar Baldaccini, sculpture of 12 meters. The district is home to two metro stations, a shopping center "Les Quatre Temps", a modern church Notre-Dame de Pentecôte. The main monument of the district is the spectacular Grande Arche, a masterpiece created in 1989 by the architects Johan-Otto Von Spreckelsen and Paul Andreu.
