Very cool indeed - infinitely better than those two 300m towers that are proposed for LD.

Twisting towers are everywhere. Getting very tired of them.

Bloody Hell! La Defense would look amazing. Those buildings are fantastic - like curvy versions of Jean Nouvel's Torre Agbar/Foster's Gherkin, but original all the same. Amazing.

There are plenty of twisted towers, that being in style right now, but these are above and beyond most. They are part of the drive to attain the limits of what can be achieved with structure. What the hell, paris wil look insane in ten years anyway.

Mmmm, I think that's a bit too much. It looks nice and modern, but it's too curvy from the other side.

Finally Paris is rising.
Those towers looks great and there is no twisting tower in Paris yet so... Good news

Cool close up look, the details are rather good!
From further away, it looks a bit "try hard" again, but I guess LD is seeking a lot of attention right now.

All in all, it seems that the 3 biggies will vastly improve the flat Skyline and also the average level of quality of LD towers, whether we like them individually or not.

I really don't see these as twisting towers, I think they are a totally different, less-used style. Certainly more unique.

Nothing wrong with more twisting towers in the world though, I would love for London to have one
