Japanese engineer Sou Fujimoto designed what, for architectural blog ArchDaily, is nowadays the finest apartment house on the planet. The name is due to its shape, actually tree-alike, with huge balconies acting as branches. Up to 7.5 meters long, are the longest cantilevered terracing existent.

Building’s curvature offers a double advantage. First, as it models a facade with greater exposure; and, too, does not obstructs the view from the houses. The complex design, then, develops as a natural form, that water or wind could have carved out over time. L’arbre blanc stands on the edge of the coastal river of Lez, between Montpellier city center and recent districts of Richter and Odysseum.
