Situated on the northern edge of central Paris, the new Paris courthouse will regroup various facilities currently dispersed around the capital, becoming the largest law court complex in Europe. The building takes the form of a slim, transparent, 160m tower of stacked volumes, decreasing in size, and contributes to the further urban development of the Clichy-Batignolles district as a new landmark.
