The Galilée Office Building by Studio Bellecour is located in Toulouse, France. In the middle of the office is a huge white concrete block that connects the two main buildings, which is the centerpiece of the design.

The building offers a spacious area to work. The Galilée Office Building maintains what The Contemporist calls a "homogenous treatment of the façades." This building also has a green roof to help the environment.

Implications - Seeing a well-designed, environmentally friendly, avant-garde structure like this is the perfect encouragement that architects and corporations need when it comes to developing new buildings. Not only is this gorgeous structure good for aesthetics, it's good for the longevity of this planet. That is a building I can get behind.
