Oh ja, merci! It was there, somewhere in the corners of my mind.

Of course it shouldn't be monotonous in any way. And most probably not that large anywhere close to Paris' historical fabric. But design-wise Perret's concepts offer a great treasury of French/Parisian (r)evolutionary architecture, that'd suit the city very well today. Inspiration should be taken from Perret and other creative geniuses! Not from the bland boring (international style) or freakish-self-centered (deconstructivist etc.) crap we see everywhere on the planet.

Indeed. But the best is to marry the style you are talking about (kind of art déco, perret, neo haussmann towers..) with modern one and glassy buildings. Blending are the best, as NY is doing, mixture between old and new (and if possible no bad concret from 60/70's)

Someone from Le Havre just gotta love Auguste Perret, oui!

The 104m Tour Perret of Amiens (completed 1954) would be the perfect rolemodel for new classical / early modern style
skyscrapers in Paris and all of France! It was the first real French highrise tower and is an icon. I just love it.

Please excuse the short excourse, but I think it makes sense to share these thoughts here. We're the skyscraper forum #1 after all.

I can see how retro towers work in North American skylines but in La Défense they would be so tacky and out of place. LD has a completely different visual identity and I hope it never changes.

ye I agree with you. Although I would like to see a cluster of retro towers in the Montparnasse area because it would alleviate the monolithic effect of the lonely Montparnasse tower whilst fitting in to the surroundings very well.

I don't think La Defense is all that different from the arrangement of some US clusters or, say, The Hague (which also boasts mildly classical style postmodern towers). American skylines might have a tendency for the bold. But every good skyline lives from both visual harmony and also the contrast of different styles. A set of timeless setbacked stone towers definitely wouldn't hurt La Defense at all. Instead they would make the place feel warmer, more comfortable. Limestone is the #1 building material Paris is identified with.

But yeah, with my appeal for classical/early modern style towers I was mostly adressing Parisian plans for skyscrapers outside of La Defense.

Yes, la Defense is quite diverse as it is and already blend some concrete with glassy buildings. Maybe some limestone buildings could be cool , but this is not were they are needed in fist place. The view of la Defense contrast lovely with old Paris, and that's why we like it, along with the grande arche remembering the triumph arc. I would love to see project in Montparnasse area, with limestone IGH, Perret style towers, and pure white glass highrises contrasting with the Montparnasse tower darkness. It should still be the pinnacle and stay somewhat the monumental point a the center of a new cluster. But other building with various height around it, making a "stair" effect, and contrasting with their colors while blending in the city by their architecture would be really cool. It may give a "Gotham city" feel, without the grit.

edit : some delirium of mine

It is completely different in that there is no old tall architecture there to emulate and follow up with reinterpretations, like it is in American cities (where tall architecture starts in the late 19th century). That's why US clusters are harmonic in diversity, because everything came gradually after the previous stuff at the right time - just putting some beige limestone towers in a convoluted interbellum wannabe style in La Défense would be like randomly doing a copy+paste of tapes of Messiaen and Daft Punk.

That said I wouldn't be opposed to trying this somewhere else, although I would still be weary of the creative results - could just be yet one more architectural Disneyland. This architectural style could have emerged as a fresh & truly creative force in, say, the 50s, but it didn't happen.
