Sorry to say that, but the architect of Tour First really ****ed up with the top. Why did he choose to put holes in it? When you are very close to it, it's ok. But seen from afar it's like if some panels were missing...

To reduce wind exposure. Without the holes the whole top would have risked to collapse in case of a strong storm.

I don't know if it's because I see the tower everyday, but I actually got used to it.

Thanks for the answer. I thought of that explanation and yes, wind must be an issue with a thin top like that. Again when you are close, it's not bad at all, but from far away it looks very weird and cheap.
Instead of those misplaced triangles, I would have preferred "holes" made of vertical or horizontal rectilinear strips or, if he really wanted to do it with "triangles", he should have put them in a coherent pattern and make them the same size.
I have always been disappointed by this tower just because of that. If it were a small tower, I wouldn't mind that much, but it's the flagship of La Defense so it's a bit sad. Sometimes I miss the time when all buildings were boxy but class and elegant, especially when seen from Neuilly.

fantastic the canopy and the new garden Nelson Mandela is better than i expected because i knew only the west side in front of the church.the right side of this garden seems to be much more various and interesting.

Beautifull ! Look like it has always been there

Seen from the historical perspective, Majunga balance the skyline and manage to create two clusters; both uniques and now both beautifull
Because the one on the left of the arch was pretty uncharismatic imo. Today it look like something mixed between north-américan style (boxy of different ages) and east european style.

Majunga's location is perfect. It fits really well with the surroundings and it completes the skyline. We're less having this emptiness feeling when looking at LD from the sides.
