Residential building located in the 13th district of Paris, rue Croulebarbe, the Albert tower was built by Édouard Albert in the late 1960s. First skyscraper housing the capital, it is listed as a Historical Monument since 1994.
Restored in the mid-2000s by the architect Gorka Piqueras, the Albert tower measures 67 meters high, and consists of 23 floors comprising 110 apartments. The facade alternates windows with translucent lighters and stainless steel panels.
Consisting of a terrace, the sixth floor reveals a 600 m² ceiling painted in black and white by Jacques Lagrange.
