Yes and the green area to the right (an heliport btw) is rumored to be used to build skyscrapers.

Paris Supertall non winning projects of "Phare" have been released !

Which do you prefer ?

Text in french , i will translate it later . you can use google traductions


«La tour évolutive» de Jacques Ferrier
Conçu comme «ultra-environnementale» (repose sur le concept de la tour en béton haute performance «hypergreen») le projet s’annonce capable de «se transformer pour durer, commente la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine. De forme elliptique, la tour est enveloppée par une résille porteuse. La structure est clairement détachée de la façade en double peau de verre. 325 mètres de haut – 145.000 m2 de surfaces utiles – 70 étages.



«L’anti-monolithe» de Norman Foster
«Le geste est simplement efficace et corporate. Ce projet est le seul à ne faire que de la hauteur le caractère exceptionnel», commente la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine. Des blocs de bureaux de 24 niveaux sont accrochés sur la structure.



«Les jumelles» de Massimiliano Fuksas
«Un geste hautement plastique : de l’architecture sculpture. C’est l’option prise par ce projet qui jouant dans l’entre-deux que constitue l’espace entre la Grande Arche et la palais du CNIT, répond avec «force et douceur»», commente la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine.


«Le concept global» de Manuelle Gautrand
«Une forte empreinte de design sur le thème de l’entrelacement. C’est la conséquence d’un parti très affirmé : la majeur partie de la structure est en façade. Soit une résille porteuse, un exosquelette aussi puissant que raffiné capable de supporter deux tiers des charges de la tour, le noyau assurant le tiers restant», commente la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine.



«Les quatre satellites» de Rem Koolhaas-OMA
C’est l’un des deux projets qui s’attachent à créer un événement fort dans le dernier tiers. A plus de 200 mètres de hauteur, quatre satellites émergent de la tour. «Dans ce projet à la façade triangulaire, il y a adéquation totale de la peau et de la structure. Le tour assume pleinement son rôle de monument entre la Grande Arche et le CNIT», commente la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine.


«Le Skysail» de Nicolas Michelin
«Anti-bloc, «Skysail» est l’un des deux projets à proposer une typologie «hybride» au sens où elle cherche à «troubler l’image» classique des tours», commente la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine. En résulte une géométrie complexe, en l’occurrence une succession de strates horizontales de différentes longueurs. «Skysail» est conçu comme une grande voile.



«L’objet expérimental» de Jean Nouvel
«Un objet d’attraction et de diffusion. En permanence, de jour comme de nuit». Ce projet établit un rapport entre l’architecture et l’image à une échelle monumentale», commente la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine. D’où cette typologie inédite, avec un gigantesque élément mobile d’environ 70 m de haut.



«L’effet prisme» de Dominique Perrault
«Monolithique et prismatique. Tel apparaît ce projet «double», placé sous le signe du pragmatisme et de la géométrie», commente la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine. Sa forme proche du trapèze est issue du peu de points d’appui possibles sur le site.


«La fine lame» de Herzog & De Meuron
«Il s’agit moins d’un gratte-ciel que d’un «coupe-ciel». Plus d’un immeuble que d’une tour. Un immeuble lame fruit de l’extrusion du site», commente la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine. L’ensemble conçu comme un «paysage vertical stratifié» avec des jardins intérieurs, est doté d’une peau très sophistiquée. Le bâtiment fait 135 mètres de face et 35 mètres de profil.

The one of Ferrier is awesome. I hope it will be built in the Pont d'Issy area.

A lot of half baked verticality here. Mayne remains a good choice imo. Plus it's an evolving project according to the man himself.

According to what is said at the EPAD's meeting (La Defense administration), Ferrier's tower could also be built in La Defense, as the "Signal Tower", which the EPAD's president said to be another over-300m tower, different from the "Phare Tower" which turned out to be Morphosis (which I do like).

Yep, just like most people, I think that appart from Morphosis only Ferrier's tower was worth it, all the others were crap.

But Ferrier's going to build a similar tower somewhere in the agglo at one point or the other it's obvious

I agree that Ferrier's proposal, which appears on that picture, is truly superb. But then, not all hope is lost. His tower is also proposed for the town center of Issy-les-Moulineaux, not far from Issy Bridge which appears on the picture with Gautrand's proposal in post #663. It is also proposed on the Avenue de France in the 13th arrondissement of the City of Paris proper.

Here on this pic you can see the Avenue de France area with some towers proposed for that area. Ferrier's tower could be built among them. The new Paris court house could also be built there. In the background in the middle of the picture you can see Notre Dame Cathedral if you pay attention, and Montmartre is to the right of the picture.


I think Ferrier's tower will finally be built somewhere in Greater Paris. At the moment there are 9 communes (municipalities) beside La Défense that are planning to build skyscrapers on their territory, so if Issy or the 13th arrondissement don't take Ferrier's proposal, one of the other communes will pick up his project. Ferrier's tower has been the most publicized in the French media.

The project never really stood a chance then lol. I thought the other projects would be better. The only one I like is Ferrier's scheme, and even then that's not amazing. And I expected much more from Mr Foster

Why? As much as i admire much of his work, his practise has come up with some real duds in recent years.

The Millau Viaduct isn't so bad though.
