For me, Tour Total is the best skyscraper in LD. I love classic strong skyscrapers.

Gorgeous city but I will admit I was disappointed with the "lack" of fireworks for New Years...

WOW! That Jean Nouvel Philharmonie building is truly amazing -- even by Nouvel's very high standards. A couple of questions: is it still on target to be finished this year? And what material is the cladding made of? Zinc? Stainless steel? It looks too hard to be titanium.

J'adore La Defense! Some North American cities could take example of such great urbanism and design.
