Espace Niemeyer, designed by the renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, is a striking example of modern architecture located in Paris. Completed in 1978, this distinctive building serves as the headquarters of the French Communist Party. The design is notable for its bold, curvilinear forms and innovative use of concrete, reflecting Niemeyer's signature style.

The structure includes a prominent central dome and curved rooftop surface. When Robert Hue was party leader, it was agreed for fashion shows and filming to take part at the headquarters. The first was by Prada in 2000, followed by Thom Browne and Jean Paul Gaultier. To this day, numerous events, exhibitions and cultural gatherings continue to take place at Espace Niemeyer.
