OH MY GOD ! this crap is so ridiculous


No please, no gold on skycrapers in Paris-La défense ... Please Nooo !

... LOL why not?

Just one skyscrapers that is cladded with Golden glass windows. It will SO look great on La D.

You know why? because if it is FRENCH, it will be a TRENDSETTER and sure not such ugly ugly thing. If French make it, I dare to bet it will be an aw-inspiring phenomental building blowing everybody's mind at the very first encounter.

Oh wow...that one is so beautiful, didn't know that one. Pretty much my taste.

Imagine if we had something as tall and like this one in the middle of La D.

The only reason this looks ok is because it belongs to a time when gold cladding was the norm. If an architect was using gold glass now they would most likely have stunted taste and create a 1980s pastiche thinking it was what people wanted....

sure ... but let's not forget that Gold is now sooooooo astronomically expensive that they can't even afford it.

Who knows, if Gold price makes a freefall, that era revive again.

Good to see the process. The construction cranes operated before at de Maastoren in Rotterdam (184m).

From wikipedia, Maastoren is 165m so what is the exact height of this building ? It's a nice tower btw .
(I know it's out of topic but I just wanted to know)

Maastoren is already constructed and finished. Looks good but not that impressive.

The Old building up infront is the former main headquarters of the famous "Holland-America" cruise lines that still to this day do operate worldwide. But the main building these days is elsewhere. Supposedly, this Old building functions as a Hotel/Event venue location and offers a nice 360 view over Rotterdam and its skyline that is getting better and will be more fun to look at by 2020.

We went Off-Topic, sorry; back to the thread again.
