Its too bad all the industrial buildings were demolished as that was the character of the area. And now it will be a typical indistinct neighborhood of modern offices.

That being said, I do like some of the buildings proposed.

This one is great with its size, it does evoke the feel of the factory. Judging by the location of the bridge it appears to be on the exact site of the old factory... ironically enough. Regardless I do think it looks very good. What is the name of this project? Is it under construction?

also this one is great:

Is Jean Nouvelle a controversial figure in France? Why did they write "sellout" on his picture?

This project is coming along nicely, albeit seems like some of the individual buildings are a bit bland

Dominique Perrault: Citylights - le campus du pont de sèvres

Internationally-recognized french architect Dominique Perrault has redrawn plans for the Pont de Sèvres towers in Boulogne-Billancourt, france with 'citylights', a scheme to transform and re-urbanize the western suburb of Paris. stripping the old façades of the pre-existing towers, the design features a double layer skin that alternates between transparency and silver shades, providing a rhythmic effect to the highly geometric structures.




Situated close to the Seine, the buildings are a composition of three towers which each serve asthe main bodies or 'petals' in the layout.
Hexagonal volumes terminate at different heights, creating a visual effect similar to an organ flues assembly.
Working with the original proportions and identity of
the architecture, the new facade design features a 'bracelet' treatment which work with oblique creases and folds.
The finish multiplies the reflections on all perspectives, providing vibrant and light-filled bands
all around the buildings.



In order to provide more connection at the natural ground level, the elevated entrance of the towers is brought back to the same level of the city.
The lobby links up the buildings on three levels, offering a generous space for meetings and exchanges.
Within nearly 70,000 m2 of office floors, additional programs such as restaurants, cafeterias, a fitness club, a travellers' lobby, intercompany nursery and more are offered throughout.
