Le Monde Headquarters by Snøhetta

In the immediate vicinity of the Gare d'Austerlitz in Paris, Snøhetta is designing an office building for the Le Monde Group that looks like a giant bridge. The large gesture of the eye-catching arched structure structure not only has symbolic value; it is based on constructive principles as well. Loads can be transferred below ground only at each end of the building site. Between, the building bridges part of the railway tracks. Altogether, the Le Monde HQ offers 23,000 m2 for 1,600 employees.

We feature this project in Detail 4.2021.
