At the end of the Historical prospect of the Triomphal Arch, this district built in the beginning of the Sixties represents the only buisness disctrict of Paris. Actually, the vast Mall called " les 4 temps", and the Cinemas Dome Imax make the district a lively place, plenty of people, almost during the buisnessmen hours. Many striking buildings were edificated there : the CNIT and the Great Arch by Otto von Spreckelsen (1989).
