Yeah, well, I'm not a fan of the green too. Anyway, the colour of the cladding isn't the only difference between both versions. The right one has straight façades from the ground to the top, whereas the left one has multi-layered façades with shapes reminding leafs or petals of a flower.

Here we can compare better the differences in design between both versions as they share the same cladding colour. Sorry if the images are big.

Metropolitan, tu les as trouvé où ces différents rendus ?
I prefer the blue version shape. It's like a flower. But green color is better for me.

Actually, I didn't find it... I actually drawn the new shape by myself. The thing is I'm convinced the problem with Generali is about a too strong rupture between a very simplistic shape on the main body and a very extravagant shape at the summit. I thought that in continuing the lines drawn by the pikes all over the tower, it could integrate them better to the structure and make the tower more elegant.

I was just curious about others opinion and that's the reason why I posted it here. Unfortunatly, this is more a fantasy version than anything else.

You're right. The shape is coherent with yours renders. Otherwise, i think the roof is incoherent with the shape of tower.

It's a chame. Have you shown yours renders to project's architect or to EPAD ?

The blue version is kinda better than that bland green facade.
