Paris, France - This tower in La Defense business district is called Cheminee d'Aeration by Raymond Moretti. The tower sculpture is nearly 100 feet high and comprised of concrete and fiberglass. There are apparently 700 narrow, colorful fiberglass tubes surrounding the tower.  Not an office building at all - apparently art hiding a ventilation shaft.
