Well, honest people can only admit that this tower will enter the history books, like the Eiffel Tower in its days, because it is a revolutionary concept, whereas some other towers that I shall not name won't.

The renovation (in fact an almost complete reconstruction) of the Paris Zoo has also finally started since last September 26 after 6 years of 'thinking'. The zoo will
reopen in 2014. It will be one of the most modern zoos in Europe, very different from the old zoo, will a natural look to it, a bit like the zoo in San Diego.

Some renders.
