Moreover, from the hypercenter of Paris, the tour Triangle will be seen from its skinny side (and this part of the agglomeration is not included in the famous perspectives of Paris from the historic places).

Come on...please find out about the project before talking bullshits...do you really think that both the architects & deciders would come up with/approve a highrise destroying the "nice authentic view on Paris"...?

Please peruse Triangle's website in its totality HERE.

100th Tour de France: finale in PARIS



Quote:
The 100th Tour de France requires a fitting finale and the city of lights will be lit up for an evening showdown for the sprinters for a stage that begins at 5.45pm and is expected to conclude at around 9.30pm. The race from Versailles to Paris is 133.5km long and features 10 laps of a circuit up and down the Champs-Elysées. The traditional circuit features an innovation never before done since the race first concluded on this famous avenue in 1975: instead of turning in front of the Arc de Triomphe, the peloton will race around the Place de Etoile.

We can see the frustations here of the people who want to see innovation with architecture in Paris but the sooo many projects abandonned because of the sacred hausmannians and monuments... Paris can't keep all in the long run, sometime we'll need to destroy old to build new... and some (mostly parisian inhabitants) should get used to it, the quicker the better . Let's start with some glassy pyramid to go smooth and next supertalls next to the Eiffel tower

curious post cb31, La défense have too a considerable impact in the paris urban skyline, where do you want to build skyscrapers only at la défense ?
Paris could stay the single big city in the world like Roma without new towers into his administrative limits ?
this tower triangle will be built as far as possible from the historic center in front of the péripherique ring-road around Paris, thus nothing wrong.
Has Paris to stay a big museum ? no ! every new towers into Paris will be built in front of the ring-road, in front of the suburbs.

here a map of paris with tower triangle location.

as far as possible from the historic center..

This is an alpha ++ city

So proud to be french !
How could others cities rivalize with Paris?

Even the magnificient Rome can't compete. Paris is this unique city mix between past & future!

Next year brits will welcome the departure of edition 2014

I watched the final live on TV and these aerial views are very impressive. I love the unity and harmony of the Parisian skyline, how we can distinguish monuments and avenues very easily from the sky, and just how big the city is!

The 3D mapping on the Arc de Triomphe was of very high quality, I only wished it had lasted longer.

Incredible pictures, thanks for sharing guys.

Vonbingen: For me La Defense has a extremely positive impact in the skyline of Paris because it allows the construction of tall and modern buildings which improves the international and business images of Paris. And most importantly because it allows the construction of these kind of buldings in a planned way that created this organized amazing views of all the buildings that we see at La Defense.

Like you I don't want Paris to become only a museum city, but building a lot of towes all around of Paris won't make the city more dynamic and more global competitive. Paris could stop being a open museum and compete strongly with others global cities with another measures, like: allowing stores to open on Sunday, reduction taxes in businesses and in general, investing more in public transport and improving the condition of the current system.

I don't have a extremist position against towers in Paris, but I think if Paris will built big towers outside La Defense it most be in a very planificated area where it could created a mixture of services and activities and not building big towers all around of Paris. (And very importantly far of the center)

The views that all of you guys shared really worth preserving. No other global city is this beautiful and Paris most preserve what others didn't care to do, to remain as the most beautiful city on earth.

PD: I'm completly in favour and I can't wait to see the Hermitage Plaza, Phare tower, Air2 tower, Ava tower and other amazing and taller building at La Defense.

Fantastic Tour de France this year !

Intense race, wonderful landscapes, gorgeous cities and landmarks, sunny weather, and great final stage in evening with the Patrouille de France and a nice light show on the Arc de Triomphe.

It was amazing.
