Herzog & de Meuron's Le Project Triangle has just received approval from the cross-party council of Paris for its construction. An incredible structure that will rise 200 meters from the Porte de Versailles in Paris, the stunning skyscraper will feature a profile so slim that it casts virtually no shadow and its orientation will be optimized to take advantage of both solar and wind power. Paris' new pyramid will be the first high-rise to be approved for construction is the city's center since 1977, thanks to the recent lifting of a 31-year-old ban established by the previous Mayor of paris, Jacques Chirac. If the ‘Triangle Tower’ is able to make it through all of the red-tape it will face over the coming years, it is estimated that the building will be completed by 2017.
