So if London Underground is not the best subway in the world it is because it is the oldest.
So if Canary Wharf skyline is not the best in Europe it is because the district has only 21 years old but it has the best quality of building.
If The City is ugly, it is due at the post war reconstruction.
What else ?

So we can say if La Defense has old building, old pavement and a 60's urban planning it is because it is old. Why we can't give this argument ?

La Defense on sunny day is really agreable, you see a lot of people in the ugly esplanade and most are not office workers but familly, couple. Why, if La Defense is so horrible, most people who live in this district love it ?

Rate Our Skylines threads are about the skyline not the quality of pavement and in this way La Defense has a better skyline than Canary Wharf.
Oh please, stop being so self righteous.

Read my post properly, in it, i said LD has the best skyline view in Europe, no doubt.

I was merely pointing out that once you get up close, LD dosent match up to the view.

And if your saying some of the French posters on these forums dont come up with excuses for Paris not being #1 in some areas, your a liar.

La Defense looks awesome can't wait for the new towers.
Got to say I've always loved the name La defense, it sounds so strong.
How did the name originate?
