The astounding visual impact of White Tree (Arbre Blanc) apartment building reflects the theme of the design award that was bestowed upon it: Architectural Folie of the 21st Century.
The White Tree
The design of this building is the work of a Japanese and two French architectural studios and its construction in Montpellier, France is planned for completion in 2017.
The White Tree’s designers have created a structure that is inspired by the desire to reflect nature in numerous ways. The 17 story apartment complex is to be integrated sympathetically into the surrounding environment, joining the old and new parts of the city, as well as its roads and river.
White Tree’s overall form is intended to give the impression that it has been carved out by the elements themselves and the balconies and shades that project form its central core not only evoke the natural growth of leaves, but are also designed to take advantage of the surrounding landscape.
Through the inclusion of a restaurant, gallery and rooftop bar means that Montpellier’s landmark structure will also engage with the wider community, as well as its owners and occupants.
