As one of the most iconic landmarks in the world, the first goal of this International Competition is to design a new icon to the city of Paris.
The architecture of this new structure should reflect contemporary design and historical tendencies.
The proposal must not only attend to the specific function but the design should also take into consideration the urban insertion and impact geared towards creating a new perspective and icon to the city.
With this competition we hope to achieve the following:
_To generate a balance between the real historical moment of the monument and nowadays.
_To find a design excellence between existing architecture and engineering with the project to be.
_Research, respond to and highlight the unique aspects of designing a new icon (tower).
_To generate the discussion of ideas regarding the functionality of towers in relation with art and sculpture.
_Estimulate the employment of sustainable design in all aspects of the proposal.
We want to encourage participants to think as the great minds behind this building.
