quai André-Citroën and 2 rue des Cévennes
Richard Meier and Partners
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
