it's all right. the design tries to hard to be cool though. it all depends on the cladding.

it's not ugly, it's original, unique.

I love the trees inside it, and how on one side the curves goes...

i'm gonna say like KrystOf ... Go la Défense!

Actually I like it a lot. If only the cladding would really be looking like aluminium, that would be cool! It reminds me of the Frankfurt Hoch Vier office tower.

Nice design. But the tower should be 30m higher in order to stand out a bit.

Not only Viguier uses Majunga, Thom Mayne was also getting high on Majunga when he designed Tour Phare.

Curvy towers seem to be in vogue in La Defense. Don't think too highly of this one, but at least will add some variety in contrast to the older slabs.
