I prefer the first version, though I still like the second one. I'm a fan of this project from the very beginning

Me too. Moreover we don't know the exact high of the tower : maybe 280m, maybe 300m... We will see it...

this is an insult to skyscrapers
first or second version, I still hate just as much, and would go and piss on its entrance just to show how much I do not respect it
In fact I will fedex Thom Mayne a bowl of crap to make him know that he should quit his career

That's how pissed off I get when I see people make such stupid choices. It's like somebody saying let's build a nuclear power plant in the middle of a city. This will sink La Defense completely

Yes, I totally agree with you.

This thing which is about to be erected in my country and my city is not just an insult to skyscrapers, it is also an insult to everyone in France (and elsewhere!) who want real skyscrapers, not such ugly things like this.

I dont agree with the people saying the design is ugly ... and IMO the building look really good and will change us from all those boxy buildings in la defence

Quel horreur!

The fringes on top will make it look like it's unfinished permanently; and the bulge at the base gives the impression the whole building has molten in the heat. New design please.

Not a fan. A bit silly, and unnecessarily so.

this tower is definately one of those 'love-it-or-hate-it-buildings'
i certainly love the organic design and the unusual shape. I'm glad they reduced the 'fringes' thoug.

May be it's just not a skyscraper. May be that's something we cannot understand yet.
May be it's a new kind of skycraper after all.
