The Problem though with the French is... they hate it. They think it is the ugliest building on earth and its hugeness is disliked because the french say it "ruins" the centre of Paris.

The French think EVERY skyscraper is the ugliest on Earth. It would be better if they built some tall structures around the tower to balance it out.

It's gorgeous. Reminds me of Zaha Hadid designs.

I would not want that in the USA, though. In Asia, somewhere, would be better.

Check out this building, the House of the Soviets. It lay abandoned in Kaliningrad since the 70s, let to rot alone. A. A. Gill, the famous columnist, once termed it ‘the most stratospherically ghastly building ever conceived’, and it has previously been described as ‘the ugliest building on Russian soil’. Proof that people hate buildings if they are abandoned.


It looks slightly better with a facade update, (The shape is still hideous) but it is still empty and no plans on ever completing the interior have been issued.
It replaced the gorgeous Kongisberg Castle.

Spacious lobbies with lots of light are always good.
