It's a great building! Looks great in La Defense. I saw it myself a couple of months ago.

Just think....if London and Paris were joined!! Let's think, for all the anglo-french squabbling we have actually created 2 of the biggest man-made ventures in the world: Concorde and the Channel Tunnel! Just think if we were in another world, politically and economically closer what we could achieve!

@Moderators

Is it possible to add this building to the "rate our talls" section ?
What is the rule for that ?

Thanks in advance for the answer.
