I am sorry to say that I hate this tower. Hideous and pseudo-organic, almost obscene.
That's the only tower that I don't want to be built nowhere. It's a shame for La Défense and for my country.

Actually makes most of Gehry's crap look coordinated.

I hope this is going to be one of those buildings that look better when you see it in real life, because I dont like it on the render.

Oh, snap!

I love the pedestrian walkways around the area leading up to it, but the initial renders of the building itself make it look like a bleached half-filled 50 lb sack of flour that's been sitting in someone's basement for a couple of years. Is that really the image the main tenant wants for its company? Seriously?

Call me naive but I think a building like that would have a hard time being built in North America if it were the corporate headquarters for a company of any standing.
