Official website!

http://www.tour-phare.com/

The exhibition (whose opening took place today), is visible till the end of the year.

PS:@ Alex, not sure whether the wind turbines are still topical or not. But in this render below, the 'things' at the top could be wind turbines though.

No way mate! Phare's financing was secured early 2011, you must be mistaken with another project (Signal or Generali).

The website is very informative (but I don't know whether it's available in english though).

Actually, PHARE's works should have already started for a few weeks (as shown in the schedule), but the remaining 2 legal remedies (by some daft associations) still block the start of its construction.

If those associations decide to 'fight' till the end by using all judiciary means, Phare could be up to 5 years late...(that's the worst scenario).

A few pics taken yesterday by Spouddzi










PS: note that the mock-up designers have covered Phare with exactly the same cladding than Phare, but obviously at a different scale. The result really is promising .

I don't understand how the cladding can be white on the renders whereas on the mock up it looks "brown" . Are you sure the mock up has been made with the real cladding we are supposed to see on phare ?

It just depends on the light caserass. In the render it looks 'white' owing to the sunlight reflected on the tower while the brownish color on the mock up comes from the different lightings inside the CNIT (neons & stuff).

Regarding the second part of your question, my answer's yes , that's what I read in an article, I'm gonna try to find it again & I'll be posting it on here.

I think it's very ugly... And why didn't they add just 4 metres to get to the magic 300m point or super tall status?

ugly? people are so concervative in Europe

This the truly new gen of design tower! Just because the architect dare to make something different.

And a lot of sci fi movies or series could take this tower like a new urban symbol.

We cannot force people to like it, remember the Eiffel Tower, it was so criticized at the time of its construction... but 122 years later, it has become the most famous tower/icon in the world.

I don't know whether Phare will have the same fate but at least, it doesn't leave anybody cold & that's what matters...I guess people 'hating' it right now are very likely to start liking it as Phare takes shape. I recommend Thom Mayne's presentation (http://www.tour-phare.com/#!architec...lle_generation) to those finding the tower hard to swallow, it's very informative.

IMO it's because of the French rules and maybe security requirements whose are making more expensive a building of 300 meters than a one of 299 meters.

That thing looks disgusting. "Extraordinary" and "beautiful" are not synonyms, and finding people difficult to understand doesn't qualify them as artists.

Tall ? ...Yes. Unique ? ...Very. Good looking ? ...No chance in my eyes.

You want my idea of beauty ? Take a look at the SocGen towers, or the Deutsche Bank twins. Both complexes are masterpieces in my opinion, unlike this proposed piece of crap.

Well, each to their own.

Honestly, it looks like a fashionista version of a cow stomach.
