On Tuesday 11 March, EPAD presented the teams composed of architects and investors who will
participate in the last stage of selection for the international call for projects launched by EPAD
for the construction of the tour Signal at La Défense.
The winning projects are (into alphabetic order):
-Jacques Ferrier Architectures with Hermitage(310m)
-Foster + Partners Ltd with Compagnie La Lucette(297m)
-Studio Libeskind Architect with ORCO PROPERTY GROUPE(310m)
-Ateliers Jean Nouvel with MEDEA Layetana Desarollos Immobiliarios(301m)
-Wilmotte et Associés SA with Groupe Financière Centuria / Bouygues Immobilier(284m)
For EPAD, the tour Signal project is the means of asserting the specific characteristics of the renewal
of La Défense, particularly through the innovative concept of Very High Emotional Quality ().
Indeed, several major issues govern the project for the tour Signal: above all, it is a question of
creating a High-Rise Building that combines diversity of use with exemplary conduct in matters of
Sustainable Development, in order to renew the image of Europe’s prime business district.
You can find the video of the press conference and the film showing the whole of the scale models
