No arch, no twist, just real classy, elegant, detailed, and high quality towers!

I like the design, but it may be considered as an archi copy!
Designs should be patented, so nobody else could copy them, they could be similar but not that similar.

Spectacular… I like!

In my opinion, this design renews the image of the Defense of Paris.

That was a nice video!

As much static than animated renderings are just amazing but it's very hard to have a good idea of what the city would look like with these towers built. But what the heck, actually, I really hope they'll get built!

Nice building, but it will ruin the setting of the Michelet office complex, mainly the 12 or so story buildings.

Those are beautiful towers. They would look ghastly outside of La Defense but wholly at home next to the other recent towers.

These computer-designed organic twisting do look very similar to a 50-storey condo tower that I believe is now under construction in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
