I'm very happy for the choice.Nouvel tower is the most interesting but in this moment doesn't show all the details.

Oh my God, they chose the worst design. What is wrong with these people? First we have the hideous hairy pregnant tower and now this?

no, Nouvel has always looked like Fantomas



I cannot say I am disappointed.
I really wanted Foster's tower to win the prize, especially since it is his first project in many many years that has really appealed to me, but there are chances his project might get built without the title of Tour Signal


As to this tower, knowing it is the one tower that was the most memorable (besides Foster's), and knowing Nouvel's great award won last month, it was only natural for it to be the real Tour Signal!
And not that standing piece of shit called the Phare, which I will vow to spit and then piss on one day



PS: Is there any chance that they might build the version with the 70m extra rotating video cube on top?

10/10

It's futuristic without a crazy design, I like that.
