That's my point. And it is because the skyline is flat and the buildings are short.

I disagree.. you do not need to be atop the Eiffel Tower or Montmaitre to see the Skyline of La Defense. I remember walking around parks and other parts of the central city and being able to see the skyline looming beyond. Although not the views I am referring to, here are other views of La Defense from street level or fairly close to street level:

Yes but it is not mine. When you are referring to the flat skyline you mean Ladefense apparently, this is a non-sense, how could it be flat from 150 to 220 meters high buildings... I was referring to the flatness of the general layout of hausmanian buildings that are pretty high aswell (and flat) (7/8 stories). So from street level, hausmanian buildings are like walls that hide any attempt to see any skyline in a general way... that was my point...and a moscow standard commieblock in the middle of the hausmanian buildings would not be that impressive as you thought they could since they would be like buried into the ground/ under the parisian roofs !

Good point. But, La Defense is neither surrounded by the Haussmannian buildings, nor this business district is located in the heart of Paris.

No but it is difficult to see Ladefense from Paris at street level. We'll get to it

The cluster does not stand out even if you stand in the middle of the it.

Basically, the height of towers don't generate the "wow" factor based on my personal experience.

And i think this is okay and understandable, considering the height restriction laws in a historical city Paris.

I disagree from my personal experience. Whenever you see La Defense, from atop a landmark or from street level, it looks like a big imposing and consolidated blob looming above the rather flat cityscape around it. That itself generates enough wow factor for me. It is also interesting that the shape of this mass of high-rises morphs as you see if from different angles. Look at it straight on and it looks like a pyramid with the big arch at the center. Look at it from the side and you get a more linear arrangement of peaks, like a mountain chain. It's a very versatile skyline in terms of views in my opinion.
