I am actually bored of these alternative designs. When will they choose the final one?

I guess Ferier's tower will be built whatever is the winner for the Tour Signal. In that matter I would like to see Nouvel's tower winning. It would be interesting to have an idea of the skyline with these two towers.

(Ferrier)


(Ferrier +Nouvel)


(Ferrier+Nouvel+Willmote)


(Ferrier+Libeskind)


(Ferrier+Libeskind+Willmote)

Ferrier+Nouvel+Willmote gives us the best skyline. So i choose Nouvel's design instead of Libeskind's.

I agree with you, Nouvel's tower is not bad with Ferrier and Willmote's towers.

Another video of Libeskind tower:

I am not a fan of anything unproportional, my eyes will be sored by looking at them after a while , I like it better with smooth or curving edges ,deconstructive style doesn't have to look like a knife that would cut or spear through your heart you know

Wrong. Libeskind is perfect, Nouvel is great, Wilmotte is fine and Foster is not so bad (but ok, Ferrier is ugly)

I just imagine something in my head ,since Paris has chosen to build tour Phare on one side of La defence , which resembles a chicken thigh with a broken bone on top waiting for the knife look alike Building from Libeskind from the other side, ready to chop it into pieces to make a bowl of "soup du jour"... umm yummy

May I?

Nouvel would be great and beautiful
Foster looks fine and fancy
Libeskind seems to be nice and deserves to be taller
Wilmotte is original so why not
Ferrier is ugly and ugly

I don't think that rusty color is appropriate

I'll definitely be tuning in to see who the winner is.

Here's an interesting diagram from that site:

Nouvel IS the winner.
It could have been a better choice (Ferrier, Wilmotte or Libeskind).
Once again, very disappointing (after the ugly Tour Phare).

In my opinion, Tour Phare is awsome and Nouvel is the best choice for Signal. I m very happy, even if I liked Libeskind too
