Tour granite

The construction of an edifice as ambitious as the Tour Granite involves collective work, where each cog in the wheel is essential. It is above all a human adventure in which all of the participants can be proud to have contributed to the success of the enterprise, irrespective of their role or the importance of their mission. The comparative views of Jean Gaumy and Harry Gruyaert bring this human dimension to the fore. The texts by Éric Reinhardt amplify this aspect by allowing us to hear the words, thoughts and sensations of all of those who worked on the building, from the worker who poured the concrete base through to the chairman of Vinci Construction.

It is always moving when an architectural work – a visible symbol within a city – gives rise to a feeling of personal appropriation for those who produced it or who work there. The building becomes the site of a crystallisation of identity.
