Paris La Defense Seine Arche

The American photographer Alex Mac Lean has taken various photos of La Défense Seine Arche district and of the historical axis connecting it to Paris.

He has a critical view on the development of Europe's first business district and its main axes, as well as of the piling effect deriving from platform-type urban planning and its various components. La Défense Seine Arche district comes up as a continuation of the historical axis running from the Tuileries garden to Grande Arche. This axis constitutes an essential element of the Parisian urban landscape. Through these photos, Alex Mac Lean states his point of view on the close relationship between the royal city centre and the modern urban achievements in La Défense.
