Reminds of the Beekman in New York in the fact that it has one adventrous attractive side and then one incredibly out of place bland side where they ran out of ideas.

Personally I like the Fuksas and the Ferrier designs best. The winner may be the most unconventional/unique, but that in itself does not equate to being better. However, its the winning design so good luck with this. The latest render does suggest that the design is being squared up to some degree - perhaps to meet market requirements or for value engineering reasons.

I wish Europe would build a supertall with around 350m in the style of the Busan Lotte World Tower. This kind of supertall is my favourite, let's just hope Tour Phare won't destroy the cluster quality.

Busan Lotte World Tower
Actually it is Lotte tower that would destroy the paris skyline with its height (and design). Tour Phare fits perfectly in la defense. It looks like it literally "grow" from the surroundings

No dude, nothing has changed, the back of the tower has always been that way. The tower's design is definitive for quite some time.

I spoke about a "cut" Busan Lotte World Tower, 350m.

new (I think) renders










I still don't get how anyone can call it ugly architecture. It is truly one of the best designs I've seen in past few years.

It is ... right up until the "crown" . That may be unique as well but unique does not necessarily mean beautiful or even remotely appealing .

Kind of telling that theres a distinct lack of renders of the flat side.

If you were the designer would you try to show the flat side?

The exhibition dedicated to the Tour Phare will open late september inside the CNIT! There will certainly be some mock-ups & new pics of Phare. I'll take some pics...

PS: I really don't get the criticisms regarding Phare's crown/hair, it's everything but shocking, I do like it as it 'finishes' off the tower nicely.

The exhibition dedicated to the Tour Phare will be opened to the public on tuesday 4 october, inside the CNIT.

Furthermore, it was reported last weekend that the giant scuplture Pouce de César (Cesar's thumb), where Phare is to rise from, will be either moved down the Esplanade de La Défense next to the CB21 tower (former GAN), or Place Valmy.

Hi Alex & welcome,

So far there aren't renders where the wind turbines are visible, but perhaps we'll be able to see them from tomorrow at the CNIT. Indeed, as mentioned above, a very informative exhibition dedicated to Phare will be opened to the public from October 4th. Therefore, if you guys are in La Défense in the next few days, go & take a look at it, it's certainly worth it & of course, it's free.

PS: this is the CNIT --->
