VIEW at the Porte des Lilas by Baumschlager Eberle Architekten, Paris  A shimmering strip in the urban space, softly swinging outwards. Resembling a dragonfly in its ground plan, symmetrical and rising gently. In terms of function, an office complex with 22.000 squaremeters gross floor area . The new building close to the acoustic epicentre of Boulevard Périphérique has a host of functions to fulfil. With its two “wings” and the common, connecting auditorium, the house has the appearance of a solitary structure, its form swinging freely, however, in the context of very rough surroundings.
