This environmentally friendly sail will ultimately become a new identity for the complex. It is expected to become a new symbol as the western gate into Paris –
Shigeru Ban Architects.

Four different types of Guardian SunGuard® coated glass help to create a stunning, energy- efficient glass façade for the recently opened La Seine Musicale music and cultural centre located in the Boulogne-Billancourt suburb of Paris.

Designed by Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines Architects, the building is the latest feature in the site’s Island Master Plan. The lower part of the music hall’s globed, shell-like, hexagonal structure is glazed with SunGuard® SNX 50/23 solar protective glass, which lets in plenty of natural daylight combined with excellent solar protection.
