I really like this tower, although it's a shame it's relatively hidden away behind other buildings. I'd like to imagine that the cross-hatch design was inspired by fishnet tights:

Another poorly and cheaply clad high rise in La Defense.

Very disappointing, what is it with La Defense and cladding?

Lol there is nothing wrong with the cladding at all. Anyway, LD is improving with these new towers in terms of architecture and quality. LD can still look somewhat gritty tho, but it has it's charm, like Paris in general

I have to agree with you skyscraper666, I'm not sure this is trolling, it is pretty clear from the construction images that the contractors are not using good quality cladding / glazing, I have seen other posters make the same comments too, even French forumers. It's decent, but not world class!

Unfortunately there seems to be a bit of trend of using cheap materials in La Defense, I have been many times and although the massing looks quite good from a distance, up close and personal there aren't really any quality skyscrapers, lots of concrete boxes with awful cladding and glazing choices.

Paris - sort it out, Parisiens deserve better than this!

Let's hope Hermitage leaves the drawing boards and becomes reality!

I am sure the French people would like to kill me for this criticism but i have to be honest and express my opinion that it's quality of glass, steel frames, and other materials being used are not top notch and the construction site seems pretty messy and unorganized too. You will observe a huge difference in quality when you compared it to other U/C tower like Leadenhall Building in London. Anyway, La defence cluster looks very dense and fantastic overall.

The cladding to me looks better than the Leadhenhall's.

Nowhere as good as Richard Rogers's iconic masterpieces.

Are you kidding me, haha the leaden hall cladding is like one hundred times better than this, it's in a different league. There are expensive good quality and best most quality cladding and expensive materials and expensive cladding like the leadenhall in London, then there is the cheaper and lower quality cladding and materials like this. Everyone in the architecture industry would laugh you out of the room if you ever tried to say that this cheap cladding is better than the top quality and expensive cladding on the leadenhall building
