This awesome, futuristic design...

Please, compare the same angles
the "futuristic" angles are in the other side.

compare what you think as a "cacophony of squares" with the last version of the same angle... we lost the a piece of "hairnet" but the shape is exactly the same!

the last version of the back side


This render shows the "futurist/organic" angle of your pictures.

This tower rocks. It will be a new symbol of Paris, on par with the Eiffel Tower.

Bit awakward, bold idea to build sth like that in Paris though.

Still, it lost some of it brutalist wildside on the way. Come to think of it, I quite like it!

What's that square thing in the pictures? I hate this tower, but I hate it less than the silly stuff around it.

With this i must agree, as some have said, the "back" is allright but the "front", as well as the top is much too idiosyncratic. and this is a LARGE tower, i'm only guessing but it looks to be at least or close to 2 million sq.ft. and about 75 floors, it's a veritable monster for the area.

However, I can say that the work of Morphosis never ends up looking quite like the renderings.

It could have been (asthectically) better..!!!!

The design is crazier than a bipolar meth head. Makes me feel sorry for the French.

Paris

I am all for creativity. But, that is one hideous buillding. YUCK! Paris deserves so much better. Besides, if any flying creature (birds) fly into or land on those things, dead bird!!
