Square of the Seaons

The district of La Défense had its first constructions from the beginning in 1960 with the rehabilitation of the First Tower (former AXA tower) and the new landscaping of the Place des Saisons which is facing the tower. The project ties together this public space amidst several buildings (housing, offices and retail) and by organizing the pedestrian flows and by diversifying the planting typologies (birches, cherries and maples). The treatment of the ground (gravel, wood, concrete) and the lighting allow multiple uses throughout the day. The surface of the ground occupied by the entrance of the parking is reduced and the vertical ventilations emerging from the ground have been removed. In the long term this square will open toward the Seine between the future Hermitage towers.
