Not really actually. The Arc de Triomphe is 50 meter tall and we don't see it above other buildings. The average height of a building in central Paris is I guess between 20 and 30 meters, and the city is highly packed.

As such, nothing below 80 meters is really visible accross the city.

The picture is taken from the top of the Eiffel Tower. That's not really a relevant point of view.

The fact it is visible from there comes more from the fact it is isolated in the middle of a giant circus rather than the fact it is taller than the rest. From that point of view, the Obelisque and even the Louvre are as visible (if not more) than the Arc de Triomphe.

In the 20th arrondissement, there's already tons of 1970's buildings reaching 50 meters, and we never see them if we don't go in their streets.

I understand what you mean by the arc de triomphe is not visible from the other side of town, but it is taller then the surrounding buildings! People wouldn't go up for the view if it wasn't.

Anyways stupid debate Back to topic.

Are you sure the Champs-Elysees is supposed to be modified in any way, even as a double-decker street? Why must that study be done, anyway?

The developper doesn't own the terrain across the main axis. Btw La Défense already has the axis, additional symmetry would be over the top IMO.

I agree, Paris needs harmonious assymetry.

I don't like the "out of place gateway" that these twins will become,even tough I like the shape of the buildings alone.
If Sir Foster could have drawn one tower taller than the other the effect would be much better.

La tour Phare sera le plus beau gratte-ciel de la terre, je crois bien! Quelle élégance! Très hâte de voir la première pelleté de terre.
