La Defense in the west of Paris is the largest office building complex in Europe. The district is centered around the 100m tall Grande Arche, built in cubical shape between 1982 and 1990. The arch overlooks a huge open square which is entirely a pedestrian area. The square is surrounded by department stores, shopping malls and office skyscrapers.
