Is there any way in which to view all the proposals, a website perhaps?

I was suprised by Ferrier's I thought it would be similar to the Tour Phare entrant, which was much better. Willmotte's is OK, but reminds me alot of some other proposals I've seen around here. And I don't know what the hell Jean Nouvel's is supposed to be! It isn't a very good render to judge really.

I like Libeskind and Fosters the most.

How I rate, going by those images:

1. Libeskind
2. Foster
3. Wilmotte
4. Ferrier
5. Jean Nouvel

Looks like Nouvell is going for some reference to Blade Runner

The renderings are really bad. 5Why we couldn't have good quality renders in Paris
My favorite

1. Ferrier projet look good (excepted the rendering) if we see the video in the offical site.
2. Foster project look good. (excepted the rendering)
3. Wilmotte one look good even in the render (an exeption)
4. Libeskind project look like a copy of a projet in NY.

. Nouvel project is... how I can say...

My favourite is Ferrier's, but I don't like how it looks as part of the cluster. It looks way to dominant. I'd go with Libeskind. What a classy district.

3.Foster
4.Ferrier
Nouvel- Nice interior, but exterior seems quite bland to me. Not going to rate it.
