EDF Tower (aka Tour Hines or Tour PB6)

Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners
2001



This elegant addition to the "tours" (towers/skyscrapers) in this business district is only one of many terrific works by I. M. Pei and his firm. The building is elliptical with a 28 story slice on the Esplanade side to emphasize the entrance.
 
A circular awning 20 metres in diameter cuts into the ground floor interior.
