“French romances occupy a central position in the development of medieval European
literature. Their most popular subject matter by far was the Arthurian legend, which, though it
had its origins elsewhere, was first cast in romance form in France: the Round Table, the
tragic love story of Lancelot and Guinevere, and the notion of the Grail quest were all French
innovations."

- The new project is by Christian de Portzamparc.
- it will cost 630 million euros (as opposed to 900 million for Phare).
- the tall tower is a 200 meter high office tower.
- the smaller one is a 100 meter high 4 star hotel with 400 rooms.
- they are linked by a 3 story high skybridge at 80 metres high. The skybridge will house a spa, restaurant, projection room, and a garden.
- projected completion date is 2021.


Why Phare was replaced?

- the official reason given by the developer Unibail is that the mayor of the neighbouring town would not allow the temporary destruction of the bridge that linked it with La Defense.

- The real reason is more likely to do with the impracticality of the project (especially at ground level), and the sheer difficulty they would face filling a 300 meter office building in these economic times.

I have to say I really like the Tours Sisters and I'm happy that it's a better replacement than London's Pinnacle Tower and New York's 2 WTC.I really hope they get build,it'll be nice to have some doubles in La Defense alongside with Hermitage plaza and Tours Société Générale or whatever they're called.

The new Phare is a disgrace especially when you look to what it could have been.

I like it. Phare was nice but it looked kinda ugly from some angles.

I am enthusiastic even though Phare would have been a striking landmark. By the way where is Bagneux Kisssme ?

inner southern suburbs. It's a working class municipality with a communist mayor surrounded by rich suburbs, so they want to gentrify it as quickly as possible

Tour Phare was too high as well in my opinion.
