Créteil, France
1 of 8federico novaro

Les Choux de Créteil (aka the cabbages), designed by Gérard Grandval is a residential development located in Creteil, a commune in the southeastern suburbs of Paris, France. The complex which consists of ten towers (each fifteen stories high) was built in the early 70s as an experimental approach to public housing needs. The petal shaped balconies, which give the buildings their unique appearance, were designed to allow privacy for the occupants. The architect originally envisioned plants to suspend from the balconies. However the idea was shut down by the developers concerned with keeping the buildings insect-free.
