Ok i was in the middle of cluster and i was not impressed. Sorry, but this is my opinion and these are the pictures i took.

Don't get me wrong, Paris is a magical city which is full of countless amount of wonderful things. But, La Defense? Uh hum...

If i hate Paris, why did i visit there and why am i planning to go back there again to propose my girlfriend on the top of Eiffel Tower? (The world's most iconic, magical and romantic tower). And why did i take photos in La Defense if i hate is so much? Logically, your claim is just ludicrous and it does not make sense. Well, even French people in their local French section (and you know that) agree with the fact that the buildings in La Defense have poor architectural lighting designs, the entire business district seems pretty dim and dark after evening and on the other hand you guys have always been the ones who desperately want to see taller buildings (skyscrapers 200m+) and iconic landmark towers. I have the right to express my vision and everyone is entitled to their opinions.

I particularly like the architecture of the high-rises of La Defense. I think the designs are edgy.... perhaps even a bit "out there". The newer towers are "out of the box" designs and, overall, I think all the buildings work well together. I personally like this cluster and the design of its buildings more than other European cities. Who cares if they are not illuminated Hong Kong style.... the Eiffel tower's sparkling light scheme steals the show in this city anyways.

What we are comparing are feasts , aesthetic feasts , upon the eye and our subjective interpretation of them.

Some of those shots of Frankfurt above look to me pretty awesome ..and puts Frankfurt in first place in the 'skyline' league of Europe........ yet I know Frankfurt is a miniature city compared with London .. and London has a thousand such feasts for every one offered up by Frankfurt.. I just feel Frankfurt is becoming a 'one trick pony' ..

My top ten

1. London
2. Moscow
3.Paris
4.Istanbul
5.Frankfurt
6.Warsaw
7.Rotterdam
8.Vienna
9.Milan
10.Madrid

Ikniw what you mean NWTS and I basically agrees. Ladefense from the inside Ladefense is not that much impressive. It is the overall cluster that is interesting. The esplanade is too big and that makes the buildings too far to each others but on some spots you feel the density thought, especially the canyon around D2. There is a strange feeling and I think the size of the esplanade made me loose the scale of what surrounded me .

Do you know why at least...? You can count yourself lucky not to have a Delphine Batho as an ecology minister in London! (She got sacked ever since). She's the one who set up a new law (which took effect last July) to force all buildings (La Défense's included) to swich off their lights from 1am to save energy...

I think it's good to enquire before talking nonsense...

Hum! This is utterly bullocks. I was referring to the the light decoration on individual tower and the towers in La Defense have inferior architectural lightings. Most highrises look so outdated as well, but i think it is understandable, considering the fact that this business district was erected in 1883 and the highrises were designed and built since 1970s when other European cities didn't even have a cluster or skyline.
