Grande Arche at La Défense, Paris

Grande Arche de la Défense, Paris. The project to build the 'Grande Arche' (Great Arch) was initiated by the French president Mitterrand. He wanted a 20th century version of the Arc de Triomphe. The design of Danish architect Otto van Spreckelsen looks more like a cube-shaped building than a triumphal arch. It is a 106 meters (348 ft) white building with the middle part left open. The sides of the cube contain offices. You can take an elevator to the top of the Arche de la Défense, from where you have a nice view on the city center which is only 4 km further.
Dr Mama in front of the Arche
Yameen was there too
And so is Apai
(this is the 3rd time we were there)
Even Ina went there too
Apai & Yameen ... again
View from afar
Me and my two stooges; then
With Yazid and Mak Datin Wan Mariam
One for the album
At the couple want to photograph alone too
At the bottom of the Arche
