quai André-Citroën and 2 rue des Cévennes
75015 Paris

Richard Meier and Partners 1992 

The Canal+ headquarters in Paris is a commercial application of Meier's recipe of all-white paneling, all-white detailing and glass. In this case the building houses studio production facilities, in its east wing, and offices, in its west wing with views over the Seine, for the commercial television company Canal+.

The result is an attractive commercial building, but not a  show destination on a par with Meier's museums (e.g. in Barcelona or Los Angeles) or private homes.
