Built in 1985 and designed by architect Adrien Fainsilber and engineer Félix Chamayou, La Géode is perhaps one of the most striking buildings in Paris.

A giant mirror ball, it is 36 meters in diameter, equivalent in height to a 12-storey building, and covered with 6,433 stainless steel triangles, which reflect the surrounding environment. Besides being an architectural work of art it is also a very special movie and events theatre: inside, La Géode’s 1,000 square-meter screen is made up of perforated aluminum panels and stretches over a hemisphere of 26 meters in diameter.
