A new render of tower Air² (195m / 40 floors). The tower is to replace current tower Aurore in La Défense by 2011.

Citroen Showroom by Gautrand is now open. A new nice piece of architecture in Champs Elysées.

I actually like the idea fusing futuristic elements along traditional structures. As long as they don't over do it, it would be fine

when it comes to paris, its effort to restore and clean up its hundreds of years old classical buildings amaze me more than their modern buildings

It's still on schematic design. These renderings aren't official but closer to what the tower will probably look like than the inititial renderings.

The tower has got a haircut. Some users count 63 floors, others count 70. The back has been strongly modified. The netting is more visible. There's no more connection with the CNIT. Eventually, there's now a new little building at its basis in the side of the great Arch which wasn't there earlier.

Now if it goes about my personal opinion. I think the tower is less slender than it used to be. That probably explains why I find it less elegant on the first rendering in my last post. I personally like better the new back than the older one. However, some other users disagree with me on that point. The new hairstyle isn't that bad. Of course it's less wild than before, but I personally find it better integrated to the netting of the double-skin cladding.
