Rugby's future 'Grand Stade'

The last two cities still in the race to host the Grand Stade are Thiais-Orly & Ris-Orangis. The winner will be known next June.

Orly seems better and more integrated inside a dense urban district.
The area around the stadium in Ris Orangis just look like a boring low density sprawl.

Usap must be a nimby...daring to compare Triangle & Montparnasse which have nothing in common really is being ignorant & pathetic...

I'm delighted to see the number of signatures going up constantly since the petition's posting today, it just shows how much the Triangle project interests people. I can see that many foreigners have already signed it, so thank you very much folks all around the world for your valuable contribution .

The battle with the nimbies has just begun so let's keep on signing it, Triangle's future depends on you...

sorry jex but i'm not a nimby. Ii think nimbies lives in Courbevoie or in "les damiers", trying to prevent the phare tower project (amazing tower !) and hermitage plaza in La Defense.

I search desperatly to sign a petition for those two project (mainly for Phare) but i don't find.

I want towers in Paris, but not like Montparnasse or hotel Concorde Lafayette.

Please, Paris, don't do the same mistake with Triangle.

So, if I get your point usap, you actually don't dislike Triangle in itself, but you mainly blame it (as well as every single tall project) for being in Paris, am I right in saying that...? To sum up, to you, tower = La Défense & only La Défense...right?

ps: there are residents living in the vicinity of Triangle, those are nimbies too...

Please stop being so manichean, I would like more towers in Paris too, but not that thing which is, I think, ******* UGLY and not at the right place.

You have the right not to like it but for God's sake, dont dare to talk on behalf of everybody, your opinion is very subjective and does not reflect everybody's.If Triangle is 'fugly', I'd be curious to know what 'beautiful' project & what 'suitable' location you propose for Paris! Give us an example please?

Did I talk in the name of everybody ? lol. I was just criticizing the way you depict usap as a nimby because he hasn't the same opinion as you, it seems that YOU don't really see the subjectiveness of your opinion, not me.

To my mind, a tower which is more large than high isn't a tower, we call it a "barre", even if it's triangle shaped (Pyongyang dit it before). There are lots of projects that I find beautiful, and Phare is the best example of them. I also tend to think that, in Paris, towers should be concentrated in some areas like La Défense or Montparnasse and not scattered all over the city.

So, if you don't talk on befalf of everyone, you'd rather write 'To me, it's ugly', would be a lot clearer.

I didn't depict usap as a nimby, in my first post aimed at him, I presumed that he was one as he hadn't justified himself. After reading his answer, I could see that he wasn't. Did I bounce back on that...no. Once again, people have the right not to like a project, but the least they can do is provide arguments.

Comparing Triangle with Pyongyang tower is so idiotic & pure ignorance...

Triangle Tower, 180m, transparent

Pyongyang tower, 330m, opaque facade

Furthermore, this is what I call a 'Barre':

Barre BALZAC de la Courneuve (demolished recently)

Having said that, after reading your post, I can see that you basically have the same opinion as usap who thinks that towers can only get built in La Défense...you should have said that in the first place, we would have understood what you meant.

To sum up, each to their own, but let's stop with ridiculous comparisons...

I agree with you South Central, why build lonely towers everywhere in Paris as there's the possibility to create other cluster ? maybe in montparnasse or in "porte de bagnolet" for example.

anyway, i don't like the tow... the pyram.., the triangle ! (Pyongyang )

I also think that Phare is a stroke of genius from Thom Mayne

That's what I call a bad investment, sell that flat as soon as you can, its price will shrink in the next coming years !
