In the 1950s and 1960s, the emergence of separated people and cars traffic mode, the lack of dynamism of the industry and the limited space of urban city development have impeded the development of La Defense CBD. The project maximized the usability of the area in time and in space through the integration of space, the increase of slow traffic and automobile traffic’s cohesion system. The project has also introduced cultural creative industry methods to activate the city’s energy and operated a sustainable development in a mixed block mode which includes life, industry and entertainment.
