I love it. The zig-zag and 3 layer effect is awesome! Is it still only proposed?

Thank goodness La Defense is a minor footnote in the urban story that is world's most beautiful city. Sometimes I think these developers are determined to go too Phar, just to dilute the city of light's sublime beauty. Shame.

It could be worse. It could be more 60s and 70s type of architecture, such as "commieblocks". Look at the HLMs in the Paris region. At least these towers are sleak and of much better material. Those kind of buildings are many times more an eyesore and they are much more numerous than the skyscrapers in La Défense which atleast are made of cool glass and such rather than boring conrete.

So to you beauty is only traditional and historical? Do you like the Parisian-style buildings built during the Haussmann period (mid and late 1800s) that dominate Paris, and the many early 1900s buildings that followed a lot of "Hausmann" standards and charateristics? I will assume you do since it dominates Paris and you are calling Paris the most beautiful city in the world, which you wouldn't do if you didn't like something that is dominant about it. Well, those buildings are so different from older 16th, 17th and 18th century houses that make up a big portion of the remaining Paris (Saint-Louis island, Le Marais, Belleville, Latin Quarter, etc). And that's different from what came even before, i.e. Gothic.

Changes are good. This includes sleak skyscrapers.

Construction should begin in the end of the year (or early 2009)

J'aime bien, hopefully will stand out a bit more in real life. I don't think is going too far, it's just what La Défense is.

Latest renderings

Some "improvements"(well,for some people lol) have been added compared to last time,therefore this is how "Majunga" tower would look like if it was to get built straight away.



I think it's pretty lovely actually,I just hope they're gonna stick to it now.

Well its chances are very good actually!The building permit should be obtained in the next few weeks and its construction(if everything's alright) is due end 2010.
There are many towers planned in "La Défense" ("Air2","Carpe Diem","Générali","Phare","D2","Hermitage Plaza" my favourite lol,"Ava","First" drawing to a close,"Signal" likely to get cancelled though...,but also "Triangle" (intra muros as far as this one is concerned!)

I invite you to check them out if you want dude:
http://www.defense-92.com/lesprojets.html

Futhermore,some big announcement(about some of those big projects) is to be made on 18 january by the EPAD (the organisation running the Défense district),I look forward to it

There are some threads in english mate(about Paris & its projects),you're very welcome to join us!Bye
