Generali and tour Phare are very difficult to make renders of anyway, due to their unconventional shapes. So you shall be forgiven. Lol.

An office and commercial project by French female architect Emmanuelle Gautrand somewhere in Paris (tiny Eiffel Tower in the background). It wasn't selected unfortunately.

Weird.

That's because most tourists, including you probably, stay only in central Paris, so they have a distorted image of Paris. Haussmannian buildings made up of white stones and slate roofs are only a minority in Greater Paris. Most buildings in Greater Paris tend to have darker facades, they also tend to be less tall than in central Paris, and many use bricks and tiles (which were cheaper materials than the expensive white stones and slate roofs of the bourgeois buildings of central Paris).

Here are some views of Paris that tourists rarely see:

Dark facades.






Here only the lamppost gives a clue that this is Paris.


Most of the buildings in Paris have roofs made of red or brownish tiles.




Of course, central Paris looks completely different, but less than 20% of Parisians live there, a bit like Manhattan with respect to New York City.

If that's the building I think about, it is actually huge ! It dominates that part of the city. As it is now, it's a very weird building, but I like a lot the planned renovation. I expect the result to be really great.
