The unpopular Montparnasse Tower in Paris is finally getting a much-needed makeover. Largely considered an eyesore of the city, the owners have decided to turn a new leaf and redo their unpopular building.
Not only will the building be more aesthetically pleasing, it will also have other features that will make it more of an environmental vanguard. These features include increasing the amount of green space, conserving less energy and relying on wind for power.
The goal of the owners with these changes is to have a green revolution in their building and shift it from a prior eyesore, to a Parisian pride, an exemplar of 21st century architecture.
