Priviledged people like you should be ashamed of complaining this way...well, see the positive side about it, your flat is gonna gain lots of value... Ah those damned 'Parigots'...and to say that they wonder why they're so criticized & disliked by foreigners & the rest of the french population outside Paris...

What Usap says is quite clear: skyscrapers only work when grouped together in a cluster. Lonely skyscrapers don't work.

And indeed, I think he's right. Building scattered towers all around the periphérique is the worst thing to do. That's already the case and we know it doesn't work, why persisting in a policy which has been proven wrong?

Giant digital model of Paris at the Pavillon de l'Arsenal

The old-fashioned classic model of Paris which was shown up untill now has been dismantled. Since December 14th 2011, it's been replaced by a huge screen consisting in 40 large LCD monitors broadcasting Google Earth satellite and 3D views at an exceptionnal resolution.

Say YES! to Tour Phare!

One of our forumers (ppierre) propose an online petition to support the project of Tour Phare.

It would be terrific if people from all over Europe and the world would sign it to show that the project affects a lot more people than just surrounding neighbours. We all suffer from nimbyism, let's show a global answer!

Here's a google translate link:
Say "yes" to Tour Phare

the dialog box is at the end of the page.

It's very subjective & you have the right not to like it, but once again, don't put people off.

I have added the Eiffel Tower on Ericparis's render of La Défense in 2018, to give an idea of dimensions. One Eiffel Tower stands between the Tours Hermitage and the Tour First. The other Eiffel Tower stands next to Tour Phare. They are both at real scale.

The Hermitage Towers are so, so very top-heavy. Does this not bother anyone else? Perhaps if one or the other or both were rotated, it would look more, eh, more pleasing. But as it is they look like two drunks about to totter into one another. I've been a bit shocked for quite awhile by the enthusiasm behind these two and the reservations behind Tour Phare. BUT that's just me.

Manuelle Gautrand Architects completes origami-inspired office building in Paris

A stone’s throw from the Arc de Triomphe and Place de l'Etoile sits the latest work of Parisian architect and former WAN AWARDS winner Manuelle Gautrand. The marble-effect skin encloses the new home of Barclays Headquarters in the French capital, bathed in natural light which permeates through the double layer of glass and thin, printed panelling.

Manuelle Gautrand Architects originally intended to utilise ‘real’ marble in the construction of this daring street-facing façade, however opted for marble-patterned, screen-printed glass in order to operate full control over the aesthetics, prevent decrystallisation of overly-thinned marble slabs, and to ensure that the tones within the panels blended seamlessly with those of the neighbouring buildings. The symmetrical panels were created in an ‘open book’ format and fade in hue from a darker strip in the centre of the façade to lighter, more delicate tones on the peripheries.

This project is not a new build but a spectacular transformation of an existing structure, with a striking new extension to the rear. The additional volume has been inserted between two courtyard gardens and clad in a textured concrete façade. At the moment this concrete was poured, a crosspiece pattern was placed in the bottom of the form in order to achieve a thin and graphic texture. The façade was then coated in a holographic glaze to add a colourful aesthetic to the interior courtyard.

Located in a luxurious area of Paris, this renewed commercial building is comprised of high level offices, a welcoming lobby area, cafeteria, six meeting rooms, underground parking facilities, a courtyard garden, and a gardened rooftop. Due to the prominent, overlooked site location, Manuelle Gautrand Architects approached the rooftop design as a fifth façade and therefore ensured that all roofs were either accessible or pleasing on the eye.

The practice has also been careful to align the building’s new form with the HQE standards (High Environmental Quality), fitting all fourteen criteria outlined by the NF bâtiments tertiaires - Démarche HQE®. These include the operation of a construction site with minimal environmental nuisance, the harmonious relationship of the building with its immediate environment, acoustic comfort, and the selection of sustainable products and construction methods.

The population living in 2009 in the 1,572 km² around Paris's Notre Dame cathedral compared to the population living in the 1,572 km² of Greater London. The Parisian figures come from the 2009 census whose results were released just last week. The two maps are at the same scale. Enjoy!
