la defense is 60 years old this year
you can see on this picture the first building (ensemble bellini) of la defense, which was built 60 years ago,...1957_2017.

La Defense would have been better if they had taken on the old streetgrid, which you can see with some remaining old quarters intact in this aerial view. You can have both, modern skyscrapers, and a really organic, "grown" urban layout. See the City of London, which is breathtaking in this regard. La Defense rather feels detached and disintegrated in comparison, though it had the same chance.

La Defense has an unique urbanism, La Defense is an unique "creature", La Defense is Le Corbusier's fantasy, La Defense is the coronary of Athens 1933 charter, La Defense is a prototype of the 1950's and 1960's, La Defense is a impregnable citadel, La Defense is an eagle's nest, La Defense is the triumph of brutalism, futurism, concrete architecture and urbanism....., La Defense is an UFO, an unique achievment,
but going to be humanized and gets modernized in the current standards.

La Defense is not Manhattan, is not Pudong of course, because has skyscrapers far smaller......and much more tiny
but when i walk in La Defense district, i am a time traveller......i feel in the 1950's and in a future metropolis......
thanks to the unique urbanism, underground areas, underground roads, a lot of footbridges, overpasses, a giant slab, fountains and contemporary sculptures.........
La Defense is unique, an Unique urbanistic realization, La Defense is the XXI century's city of Venice without cars, La Defense is Gotham City, La Defense is an unique realized Utopia.......

It's unique indeed. Being unique for the sake of it isn't always favourable though.
As you realised, by stating that there are many necessary optimisation processes ongoing.

I like the La Défense as a public space at ground level, I think its big failure is with the undergound parts. A horrid mess like from a sci-fi distopian movie.
