Many people don't like it, naming it "ugly" or "fat". I myself, however, like it quite a lot.

Of course it does look like a big fat blob, well, it is. But this has got to be one of the most complicated skyscraper designs ever. Look at the curves on that facade, definitely a very unique building. I believe it looks very futuristic as well. If the facade is top notch then I think Paris will have themselves a world icon.

The Chongqing tower is much, much better.

My only beef with this one is the whiskers and the ballsack.

Quite strange, but it seems to have a nice facade somehow. So what's the chance of this baby gettin built soon at the moment?

Speaking of babies... it looks like a pregnant woman in the last render.

But it's an interesting angle, I think it looks ok.

I found it here http://www.defense-92.fr/ but resized it on imageshack because it was too big.


Looking at this picture, I think it's pretty clear to say that the view will be incredible on top of the tower, especially when the new scrapers will be constructed

I am too lazy.
