Actually, more than simply the image of La Défense, I even wonder if it's not the whole image of Paris as a whole which will be changed.

Im sorry, but i think this design is terrible for a city like paris....it might look ok in Dubai or China where it would be just one of many awful looking towers, but in Paris it will stick out like a sore thumb.

looks like an Arab sheik's vanity project.

Quite near to Phare Tower, isn't it? I think the element that saves the tower's identity is the strange top. Without it, the tower is common.

Generali Tower is to the right, and tour Phare is to the left. The tower to the left of tour Phare is the so-called tour Signal skyscraper whose design is still unknown.

Work on this tower will start in Sept.-Oct. 2008 according to what I read in an article recently. The tower is due to be completed and opened in 2011.

I still insist that this building's top is a comic razzmatazz fit for a Parisian cirque de soleil. Send in the clowns!
