Majunga's design responds to a need for architectural variety, itself resulting from the constraints of high environmental quality. The tower is thus divided into three adjoining "plates", each with a different design. The cut-sided elements present a complex volume unified by a "double skin" facade allowing for natural thinning and air conditioning. Majunga opens on one side towards Puteaux by means of fountains and a garden.

A word about the architect

Associated with Jean-François Jodry (1944), Jean-Paul Viguier (1946) first worked in new towns such as Cergy-Pontoise and Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. His work was then part of a neomodern movement. A style that gradually faded with the arrival of large orders - the French pavilion at the Universal Exhibition in Seville in 1992.
In 1983, he won the first prize equally in the competition for the Tête Défense. Three years later, he entered the restricted competition for the Passage de l'Arche. In 1994, he joined forces with Henri la Fonta for the consultation for the Masséna district. The duo he formed with Jodry broke up in 1992. The Jean-Paul Viguier et Associés agency then took over the Cœur Défense project. In 2006, it won the competition for the Majunga tower.
