Hello, I just discovered this thread and I'm really impressed by the number of new buildings and projects in this city. I live there and I had no idea.
And I just put the banana here coz it always makes me stupidly smile

Is it possible that Phare will finally be built somewhere else ? I've seen a project in Shenzhen in this part of the forum by Morphosis, with quite exactly the same entrance/hall but without the hairs. Or duplicate towers are allowed ?

Nice, but the cladding looks a bit too metallic.

I've passed through the Place de la Republique and used the occasion to look around a bit to see how it looks now. It's a bit disappointing.

First, I liked how they redeveloped it more like a public space than as just a traffic node like it was before.

But I thought the finishing was quite poor. The trees were all left with open dirt around them, which is going to turn into mud when it rains.

Also, the stone used for the cover surface seems to be to be excessively porous, and if you spill a few drops of coca-cola or beer, it's going to leave big ugly stains. Which is especially a problem as the place is now used for concerts and public events, when half the people (at least) will drink something.

I saw that the public employees were trying to clean the surface with water, in between concerts, but I am pessimistic how effective is that. I'll go back to see how it looks.
