I never know what to make of Paris' skyline. It looks Canadian rather than French: minimalist, clustered, and modern. I almost expect European skylines to have fussy skyscrapers scattered around like in London.

@SO143, La Défense has a history, it's not a recent business dictrict like Canary Wharf for instance...La Défense was born in 1958, that's why there are so many short & outdated towers. The taller ones are the recent ones...Hopefully, La Défense will 'soon' (by 2020) have some amazing new projects, tall & iconic which will radically change the skyline like Hermitage Plaza, Phare, Generali, Air²...

quite. it even reminds me of vancouver skyline. majority of towers are quite short and look similar in terms of architecture and colour. hopefully, la defense will change this game by erecting more appealing and much taller towers. atm the skyline seems quite flat and short although it has a superb density.
