La Grande Arche de la Dfense (also La Grande Arche de la Fraternit) is a monument and building in the business district of La Dfense and in the commune of Puteaux, to the west of Paris, France. It is usually known as the Arche de la Dfense or simply as La Grande Arche.
The Arche is almost a perfect cube (width: 108m, height: 110m, depth: 112m); it has been suggested that the structure looks like a four-dimensional hypercube (a tesseract) projected onto the three-dimensional world. It has a prestressed concrete frame covered with glass and Carrara marble from Italy and was built by the French civil engineering company Bouygues.
