Actually, I really hope they build Liebskind's design. That would look great!

Wilmotte and Liebeskind are the best.

Yeah I agree. I wonder if they could make it thinner yet keep a similar design. I doubt it though.

I would say that Wilmotte and Foster are my favorite designs with Ferrier in 2nd place and Libeskind in 3rd place.The Nouvel design wouldn't be so bad if they omitted the "video screen" or whatever it is .I'm not too sure about the facade of Fosters design though,because i think the orange colour looks strange,but i think that with a "normal",blue glass cladding,the foster one would be my favorite.Ferrier looks quite interesting though i'm not too sure about the top,but maybe it would look better in reality.
here are my favorite designs:
1.Wilmotte:

(close)2.Foster:

3.Ferrier:

Not all projects are supertall. Let's hope the winning scheme will be.

Actualy, up to 3 of those projects might be built! They are proposed for different locations and Foster's proposal is a demolition/reconstruction of an old tower.

Libeskinds is a bit like Fountain Place, Dallas, 1989. Which deals with the ideas of folding planes. What do you think?

the two best projects are for me--> Ferrier and libeskind

Foster is a urban disaster because the colour is s excentrix and doesn't fit ladefense landscape

1-Ferrier
2-Libeskind

all the others are waste of time.

I agree.

If Foster wins, Paris will have a barf colored tower in the center of La Defense.

Liebeskind sucks. Sucks big floppy donkey dick. That's where he must have gotten his idea for the old Freedom tower, and now this mini version.


Foster's great, if you look at the interior, and the exterior fits great in LD, color and design wise.
Ferrier's towers are a little boring. Seems like deja vu of so many other towers in Asia.
Wilmotte's tower is pretty cool, as seen from the top, but it looks a little dead, too gray, and LD's got enough already of that
Nouvel. Well as far as being original, he's got it, because if one thing's sure, it's that people will remember a giant revolving tv screen on top of a tower. And it's almost a copy of what he put out for the Phare tower, so either he's proud of his work and wants to insist on it, or he simply was too lazy to think of something new. Unfortunately, I think that it will age very quickly, and very badly. Better pass on it
And the winner is, Foster

I like the concept behind the Libeskind proposal, but the render shows that he has not really taken this spiky, angular design concept far enough.

Wilmotte's is just cliched and ugly - ooh, look... we can make a buildking look like it is falling over. Gehry got there much earlier and did it 100x better.

Foster's design... no idea what is up with the colouring but just about anything Foster designs is interesting and usually pushing design boundaries. What I really like about Foster is his interest in the small details of building desing, not just the external appearance.

The other two designs are ****-ugly.

In general it is interesting to see how the old European cities are flirting with supertalls...

Apparently, the troll you are didn't noticed that each of those projetcs already have an investor and that all those investors but one are from foreign countries... The goal of this contest is not to make a design and then try desperately during several years to find people to pay for the tower, investors are already behind each project.

The Liebeskind design is my favorite followed by the one designed by Wilmotte. Norman Foster's tower looks a bit dull for a major landmark tower and Ferrier Tower would simply destroy the look of the LD skyline.
