Apart from the base,the first project is quite ordinary and boring.
The second one seems a lot better.It reminds me some projects by Steven Holl.

Can't help thinking of the fallen NYC WTC with this deconstructivist bent metal design at the base.

The first project looks better then the second one. BUT I don't think it would fit the area.. For some reason I think it would be perfect in an american city but not in the Paris Area. The second one fits the area better if you consider the other projects for the suburb of Issy les Moulineaux: the "Pont d'Issy" Towers ( that you can see on the second render behind the tower )

Thanks "Bnmaddict" for that information.

I love Manuelle Gautrand's tower,very beautiful design,and the folded base indeed is stunning.Now whether it would fit or not in the Issy area is another debate.Does one know how tall it would stand?
The other project (PCA) is interesting as well, I like buildings with some holes and big spaces on their facades,it's not that common.It would blend in pretty well given the "Tour du Pont d'Issy" nearby ,"NvKR" is right.

Height is not given. We can guess around 180 or 200m.
The second one is great. I love the base of the first tower, but then it turns out to be way too boxy at the top. However it is MASSIVE!!!

Anybody to do us a "favor"?




Is there anybody gifted enough to actually modify that render by moving
"Hermitage Plaza" to the back (right hand side behind "Phare" tower)?


and

another go by putting those twin towers on either side of the
Arche de La Défense?


I think it would be worth doing it to see the final result,it might surprise most of us in a good way IMO!

I would be very grateful if you guys can make it(I already asked my compatriots on the french forum but they appear to be as ignorant as I am as far as computers are concerned)

I rely on you guys!

This might be possible if you have the same photo without Hermitage Tower.

The new population figures for Greater Paris were published today. On January 1, 2009, the Greater Paris region (Île-de-France), which is slightly smaller than the Paris metropolitan area, had 11,746,000 inhabitants. That's an increase of 73,500 inhabitants in 1 year.

Tour Signal was hideous anyway. Save the site for a better design.

Thank God that s*** was cancelled.
They could build Libeskind's proposal there...I guess it was proposed for the same lot.

A new architecture contest to replace "Signal" with....Nouvel?

On Wednesday, Joëlle Ceccaldi-Raynaud (the new Epad president) announced that 5 new towers had been officially approved.

She confirmed the beginning of work for Carpe Diem tower in February 2010.

She also announced the signature of 4 sales promises on 26 january 2010 for (Générali, Aire 2, D2 and Majunga) whose work is to start this year.

Furthemore,she added that Phare was postponed (Unibail-Rodamco are willing to fully focuse on Majunga for the time being) , and Ava is frozen owing to a legal remedy.

As far as "Signal"(newly cancelled) , she now wishes to reorganise an architecture contest for a new project on the same site by declaring that she 'd like one by Jean Nouvel more opened over Puteaux,to be built in La Défense.

Approved towers:

"Carpe Diem",166m
"Générali",265m
"Aire2",220m

"D2",180m
"Majunga",205m

Is it just the angle, or does D2 seem somewhat similar to The Gherkin in London?

Both !
Indeed the angle can help but anyway it is similar, just like (imo) the Jean Nouvel's tower in Barcelona.

As I already wrote in another thread a couple of months ago, I think there are some serious candidates for "the most phallic tower contest" around Europe !!!!

Like Parcdesprinces said, it depends on the angle indeed but overall I think that D2 looks a lot different as you can see below:



I personally LOVE it and I really look forward to its construction. D2 's gonna bring something new(erotic?) to the Défense's skyline IMO 'cause I'm really sick and tired of those square shaped towers that all look alike.
