A concrete wave has been built in Paris suburbia.
Espace Bienvenüe in Marne-la-Vallée has a very innovative structure, thanks to techniques used in bridge construction.
Designed by architect Jean-Philippe Pargade, the wave houses a laboratory, in which scientists and engineers can develop the future of urban spaces through improvements in transport and energy management.
The building also includes a relaxation space on the roof, with wooden huts designed by Tadashi Kawamata.
Take a closer look at the wave here.
