Yep, "Setting new standards", I think you're right! When most cities come up with their projects of glassy uniform towers (Pelli and co.), Paris comes up with an incredibly fresh organic tower!

I'm sure that we'll see more and more towers with this kind of shape in the future... Perhaps is it still too soon for some forumers?

But is it 100 % sure this tower will be built? Can't wait to see it in real.

The site as of today (the tower under construction is the 180 m/590 ft T1 Tower):


The site in 2012 (they didn't show T1 on that render):

Non, photo prise sur Wikipédia francophone. Vérifie bien qu'on ne t'ait pas piraté ta photo si c'est la tienne.

I think they mean the actual rising of the tower will start in 2009. But preparatory work on such a complex site (one of the largest underground subway stations in the world is located just below!) should start earlier, possibly as early as next year. The tower is due to open in the summer of 2012, just in time for the London olympic games then...

Amazing design. This is exactly the kind of highrise La Defense needs. So far they have way too many boxes.

Le sofitel va sauter, c'est pas possible autrement ! et peut-être que la tour Morphosis comprendra un hotel 'sofitel' dans les étages supérieurs. Et il y aura un giga toboggan pour aller des chambres directement dans le CNIT

The tower will be built above a railroad and a street. it seems that the engineering techniques will be very complex.

The lobby will be on the 9th floor. It will be reachable through a huge escalator.
