vision of the impressive architectural complex conceived by the Architecture Studio Europe of Paris, winner of the 1991 international contest for the construction of the European headquarters: 660,000 square feet and 200 feet tall with 18 floors.

Also included are numerous interior shots: the entrance, the hallways, the entrance ramps, the parking lot, the chairs--real works of art that are practical and comfortable as well as pleasing to the eye--and the indoor garden which, visible from every part of the complex, is the backbone of the building. The book ends with an impressive view of the elliptical entrance courtyard seen from below the office tower.
