Since they're not destroying the old nice buildings the city is not gonna change that much. Only some parts will, and they're not in the historical areas. Actually they tend to be in areas that are already filled with much uglier boxes.

Plus this thread mostly highlights the big projects, there are dozens of minor projects, some like the one you're featuring, that are just not mentioned here.

Edit: Kissme answered faster than me :p

What they're doing Paris isn't actually in Paris. Most of what's going on in The City of Paris is renovation.

Outside of The City of Paris is where the major projetcts are happening. It's not like we're destroying the inner Paris. The stuff that is being built in my opinion looks great for the suburbs (which will soon be included in The Grand Paris Metropole).

Hm...to be honest, the buildings kisssme posted are a little too over the top and kitschy for my taste. They remind me of seaside resort hotels in the Mediterranean. The buildings in Berlin adhere to more classical/traditional proportions.

But thanks for the pictures!

Ah, I see... I'm glad, these ugly, modern boxes are not build in the historic Paris. So this thread is more about the wider metropolitan area?

I pass by this all the time on the metro (well the old HQ) I think it's still nice, but this will be built in the same spot? And when?

Yes, since most of the developments are happening there and this will soon be included in the new Métropole du Grand Paris (new city limits) as of 1 January 2016.

what i have posted is very classical for paris.
if you want to see kitschy building, go to Plessis Robinsson or Val d'europe.
This is kitschy (Plessis robinsson) :







or (val d'europe):

You notice the evolution? From dangerous to happy.

I have absolutely no idea of what that means!

Are you sure that's the winning project? I'm afraid this was one of the projects.

(Unfortunately) I think the final design is this one:

Maybe because Paris is already so beautiful, they think, they can build whatever ugly box they want...but if there's too much of it...it might turn ugly at one point.
Objectively, renders I saw in previous pages are sometimes boxy, yes, it's a style.. are sometimes colorfull, sometimes covered with wood or a ceative design... well, if that's ugly, ok. I really like old classical architecture. But it's a bit a dictature of tastes to claim that anything which do not echos with what was done in the past is ugly. We can have a piece for classical in the sake of nostalgia and simply because classical buildings are very nice. Could we also try anything else ? I've noticed Berlins / Londons projects are very nice and certainly with high quality standards, although at the end, when you see all the projects, it feels boring in a way. Is artichecture a field where we can still innovate ? Tour Phare in La Defense, I think is awfull. I'm laughing looking at it. But I still want it to be built because i've never seen something like this anywhere. Same for Tour triangle in Paris. Same for the Novel' twins...
When a project is posted on this forum, I know precisly the ones where people will anonymously say, this is crap, it don't fit with my design standards.. if you don't like it, don't live in it, that's all others may want to try

Are you sure your infographic is complete, it doesn't include the Eole project that started this year (extending RER E from St-Lazare to Mantes-la-Jolie)
