Snøhetta presents plans for Le Monde Headquarters in Paris

Snøhetta and SRA recently presented their plans for the headquarters of the French publishing group Le Monde.

The evolution of the media, use of different platforms and public relations are a few of the key concepts behind the project. The site is divided into two parts, and so the architects of Snøhetta decided to design a single block that would cover the entire site and then progressively subtract volumes representing the entrance and public spaces.

The end result is a bridge-like building that crosses over the entire area and represents a bridge between Le Monde and its readers. Below the bridge there will be a plaza made up of two connected parts.
The key feature of the building is a matrix of glass pixels that will cover the entire façade and create a variety of different effects of transparency and opacity, with LEDs integrated into its surface not only to provide lighting but to produce abstract data representing a continual flow of information.
