Tour Trinity is a major civil engineering project on an urban scale in the La Défense district in western Paris. For the first time in France, a 32-storey tower has been built over a void. But the tower is only apparently built over nothing; it actually rests on a concrete slab over a seven-lane highway. In addition to an undeniable urban landmark, the project takes on an important urban dimension due to the presence of this big slab adding 3500 square metres of public space, establishing links between neighbourhoods that had been divided. The project by Cro&Co Architecture offers a solution that truly improves users’ quality of life.
