The whole Montparnasse mall should be rebuilt if you want my opinion. And I believe Galeries Lafayette should have its own dedicated building if the complex is rebuilt.

Is that what all the fuss was about? some new blue lights... I thought it would be some kind of total mind blowing lighting scheme... oh well.

Well, there's no "fuss" about it. It's not headlining any newspaper, don't worry.
Jex is just a bit over enthusiast sometimes, that's all. It's refreshing and positive, IMO.

I'm not 'just a bit over enthusiast' Gui, I just stated a fact according to those having witnessed the lighting scheme 'in the flesh'.

The above pics only show the blue contours of the tower, that's the static lighting, but this has nothing to do with the real lighting scheme as such, I mean the dynamic one. I wish we had an official video, would be so much more explicit...

The only thing we've got within reach are the 'old' very short videos:




(This one is accelerated 6 times!)

The lighting scheme will evolve depending on seasons; days; night hours & events such as the 'Fête de la musique", the "Nuit Blanche"...

In Spring: main colors blue & green
In Summer: main colors blue & yellow
In autumn: main colors yellow, red & white
In Winter: main colors red, blue & white

Haha I was thinking the exact same thing. Lights? Haha with a countdown I expected something bigger like a new tower breaking ground or something like that.

Ah ces gosses pourris-gâtés...Watch it live/in the flesh rather than moaning like spoiled kids.

Lack of developments in Paris? 4 highrise buildings currently under construction in La Défense, 2 towers taller than your shard getting their construction permit only 2 weeks ago... please stop trolling!

And last but not least, chances are stronger tonight than ever that a Greater Paris will finally be established before the end of the year 2012!!

You've heard it here first.

+ The 'Philharmonie de Paris'; the 'Canopée' (new Halles); the 'Fondation Louis Vuitton', the 'City View Hotel 4*' in La Défense, the 'French Pentagone'...shall we carry on?

@Rue Q & sgroutage: sorry guys but what did you expect...we're not in Shanghai here...I'm advising you to watch the lighting scheme in the flesh/to read my previous post before criticizing, & then if you don't like it, fair enough then & too bad for you.

I think they are just jealous. Notice how these comments always come from London forumers.
