La Défense

La Défense, business district of Paris

La Défense is Europe’s largest purpose-built business district with 560 hectares area, 72 glass and steel buildings of which 18 are completed skyscrapers, 180,000 daily workers, and 3.5 million square meters of office space.

Enough for the statistics. What is less known is that people also live among the office buildings. Have a look at the river boats anchored close-by or the small park with a kindergarten next to it.

Some of the pics have been taken within the district itself or from the Bois de Boulogne and Puteaux Bridge while others are from Mont-Valérien, about 2 miles away.
