I like the design, but leave it to the french to have trees coming out the sides of a skyscraper.
I loathe how that looks.

These are renderings of Christian de Portzamparc's project for the Generali Tower. His project wasn't selected, and it's Valode & Pistre's project, with the central spire, that was selected instead.

Portzamparc's project was good,but I prefer the chosen one.Maybe this proposal would fit well as a neighbor for Tour Granite,Tour Granite II

Looks like something from Paris...whispy, frail and uncommitted. Other than that, I still don't like it.

What do you call someone who jumps into the river in Paris?
In Seine.

Portzamparc's design would have been great for La Defense, though I like the current project as well, especially that the top is a pyramid instead of a cone.

Strange, I Don´t know if I like it. But La Defense skyline is old-fashionated. Though, its better than nothing!
