France section site visit

Ray Spano, AIA, France section director, has organized a visit to the site of renovations of the La Défense AXA Tower.

CB31, now known as the First Tower, is undergoing a massive renovation and expansion designed by architects KPF and managed by COTEBA. For an explanation about the history and objectives of the operation, including sustainable development applied to existing, obsolete structures, read more .

The project visit with the France Section is on Thursday, 23 July, starting at 9:30 over coffee and a presentation by KPF, followed by a tour of the jobsite.

Should you wish to attend, please notify Ray Spano as soon as possible. (The visit will be held with a maximum 20 participants.) Site offices are accessible from the La Défense métro.

We realize that this falls during the summer vacation period, but the project is in a particularly interesting phase. If you find yourself near Paris this week, it is well worth the visit.
