CNIT of La Défense

The Centre of New Industries and Technologies (French: Centre des nouvelles industries et technologies, better known as the CNIT), located in Puteaux, France, is one of the first buildings built in La Défense, near Paris, France. It functions as convention centre, though it also houses shops and offices such as Fnac (a media and electronics retailer found throughout France), ESSEC Business School campus for executive education, as well as a Hilton hotel 1).

In June 2002, François Schuiten announced he will do a scenography for the CNIT of La Défense: “Je viens de gagner un concours avec un architecte pour scénographier le CNIT de La Défense, cet immense voile de béton, qui accueillera une nouvelle gare du Grand Paris. Des milliers de m2 auxquels il faut donner une identité” 2).
