I have never seen those projects before. But I really like it! Nice towers, nice design. It gives the city more a feeling like it's a large city.

Last time I checked Prometheus was a figure in Greek mythology. There's a statue of him at Rockefeller as well. Shouldn't they copy that one too?

I don't care if they have an Atlas statue or any other statue for that matter. I just think it should be an original statue, not a replica of an already existing one.

By the way, you didn't really understand my comment. I said the whole project seems "American" (which wasn't meant as a bad thing) and I was trying to point out the fact that it has Rockefeller Center as an inspiration (which isn't a bad thing either). The Atlas statue is a symbol of Rockefeller Center.

That said, in another render there's a different statue

I agree it has some resemblance to the Rockefeller Center, although with some of the buildings being ministeries, you'd never find the sort of 'cozy-ness' that you get with the ice rink and the large christmas tree at the Rockefeller Center (at least, in the winter).

I didn't imply that "American" was a bad thing either, especially when it comes to skyscrapers. As you said, the statue was probably used just to indicate that a statue will appear. I think The Hague is kind of on a NYC spree, they recently copied the Flatiron, literally calling it "Strijkijzer", Dutch for flatiron.

Good to see that the demolition is well under way. In a couple of years, we will have some nice skyscrapers here!

The new buildings on this site will replace the old ones in the back, that will be demolished after this project is finished!

Verry good job there in The Hague.

Slope that ugly modernism blocks this is good city planning. The new towers will be mutch more better then now.

Demo appears to be complete. Any objections to me changing the title to "prep"?
