I don´t see this as a London vs. Paris thing, I just think that article is flawed. I never mentioned anything about churches either. And I´m quite aware of the existance of tour montparnasse. However anyone who has visited these two great cities knows that there´s no modern skyscrapercluster to be found in the historic centre of Paris.

Wouldn't it be nice, when you could put these (actually interesting) figures in an own thread over here?

If you quote a message, at least try to quote it fairly instead of just extracting a paragraph out of context. I posted a message about the new population figures for Greater Paris which were published in the beginning of the year, then I gave population figures for other European metropolitan areas (namely the two largest in western Europe besides Paris, i.e. London and Madrid) for an idea of what the Paris population growth figures meant, because a figure in itself means nothing if it's not put in context.

It's perfectly fine to compare Paris with a sample of other large cities if these comparisons give some perspective and context, and help better understand the magnitude of what's going on in Paris. What's annoying is the one-on-one Paris vs. London obsession that some forumer seem to have developped, as if London was the only city in the world besides Paris. What about Madrid? Berlin? Moscow? New York? Tokyo? and many others.

Brisavoine..always lurking and ready to stab. Please dispense with your sarcasms. Now back to the thread and back to English.

The design of Hermitage Plaza twin towers, from Foster + partners, has just been unveiled.
The heigh is 323m and the towers will have 91 and 93 floors.
They will be mixed use, with flats, offices and a five-star hotel.



They will replace the former project by Jacques Ferrier.

A nice design, but I would prefer the old one by Ferrier. This one by Foster isn't bad, but the first impression is not 'wow!' and they look quite simple.
