Sou Fujimoto to build White Tree residential building in France

 L'Arbre Blanc

French and Japanese like architecture that is way beyond traditional. Their architecture may be complex but architects here like to take their chances, unlike in the US or elsewhere, where architects prefer to keep it simple. In order to stretch limits of architecture to new realms, Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has won a competition to construct a tower in Montpellier, France. The peculiar tree-like design of the tower, is a result of collaboration with Nicolas Laisné Associés and Manal Rachdi Oxo architects. The building owning to its shape has been aptly named the L’Arbre Blanc (translated: the White Tree).

Designed primarily to gel with Montpellier’s tradition of outdoor living and efficient properties of a tree, the 17-story multi-purpose tower (to be built on 10,000 square meter area) has protruding decks and balconies, which could double as launch pads for flying cars tomorrow. The building features residential apartments along with an art gallery, a restaurant, offices, a panoramic bar and a common area for all the residents.
