The program challenges participants to design a Sky Pool Hotel Skyscraper in La Défense district of the Paris Metropolitan Area.
The competition is seeking to explore and investigate the possibility of a high quality Sky Pool Hotel Skyscraper Development concept, which sets a new high standard contemporary high-rise or tall building design in a key part of the La Défense district in Paris to take advantage of the spectacular view over Paris.
It should be a design solution that responds effectively to achieving such a tall and large-scale hotel solution with a Sky Pool and one that could become a contemporary icon for the city.
The design should be visually and aesthetically engaging in contributing positively to La Défense Skyline with emphasis on provision of great hotel and leisure facility. It should maximise the positive contribution of such a vertical structure whist minimising the negative impact.
