Well, if it was renovated then it would be quite nice. It would still be massive, but the balconies are really creative.

Good example of brutalist architecture shape. But it would honestly look better in bare concrete than in those kitchen tiles

How to do a proper recladding in La Defence (Tour First)


How NOT to do a recladding in La Defence (Tour Eqho)

THis ugly yellow bastard ruins every picture of La Defence. It's like the William Beaver House of Paris.

But the Beaver House is almost invisible from outside Manhattan. As is Cassa.

Still messes up pictures.

Cassa is pretty hard to find. Even the taller Int. Gem Tower near it is invisible in many pictures. It's still ugly, though.

I just can't stand it when people try to make their buildings look 'more with the times' just for the sake of it. They ruin a big part of architectural history by doing so. Tour First was a rare success, imo, because it successfully modernized the former tower, which was looking quite shabby.
First Canadian Place was the most successful relcad for me since it stood by the architect's intentions and made it look better by adding vertical emphasis with the black corners.
