location Paris
function government, office
contributed by Naomi

The avant-garde building conceived by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer has become super hip. In 2000, Italian fashion house Prada rented the building to present its collection. Niemeyer has created a beautiful building. He wanted a simple construction without ornament. The walls of the Place du Colonel Fabien have kept the marks of the wooden boards used to build them. Oscar Niemeyer said the headquarters was ''a piece of work which will constitute in this city, I am sure, an example of contemporary architecture, and even, permit me to say, a tourist attraction.'' The main conference room with metal slates hanging vertically on the walls is situated below ground level and has Niemeyer desks and chairs. The room's dome (see the satellite images) is on the lawn in front of the curved six-story main building, sheathed in glass.

Byron says:
I visited yesterday and was told that to go into the main conference room, or to visit any of the office floors, you need to make an appointment by email with one Gérard Fournier - gfournier@pcf.fr
You can still see a lot of this amazing building without an appointment however; the forecourt outside and the foyer are publically accessible, and if you ask very nicely at reception they may let you in to the UFO/conference hall for a few minutes as they did me.
