Hey this one was great !
Better than some of the finalists. I think of Ferrier and Nouvel.

I actually have to see the videos of all projects in detail yet, but from the first view I think that the Libeskind project looks exciting and opposing to the original WTC (which was really original compared to what they are building now) it also looks well proportioned and not too excentric. Anyway, of all the finalist projects I think the Nouvel proposal looks the most extraordinary/excentrical/futuristic while the Willmotte project looks very weird. I can't say which is my favorite, I think it would be the Libeskind project, also from its position between the Grand Arche, the mall and the Société Générale buildings, but the Ferrier proposal also looks good near the Seine, although I think it would hide the other bskyscrapers which will be built "right" to the Grande Arche (seen from the Champs-Elysées/Paris perspective). About the Foster project I would say it also looks interesting, but it wouldn't fit in the existing skyline, seen from far away, as shown on the lower right render picture which shows the whole skyline.

i like that proposal and the inside is really something but i do hope it gets built somewhere desirable which will really stand out in the CBD so anywhere in europe plus definitely not in dubai as it will be overshadowed by bigger and better towers

Wow that project is absolutely great and it seems to fit perfectly even thought it's 440m. Was it a refused project for tour signal or an actual project?

That last one is very good but maybe it's not very practical in terms of cost

Nouvel's proposal is grotesque.I don't see how that is one of the finalists.I hope not to have a bad surprise with the winner!

the DGLA project looks very cool ,IMO better than any of the current projects,and 440 m...would be great if it would've been chosen,but unfortunately it didn't..or maybe is there still a small chance that it gets built!?because i really think that LD needs a 400+ m tower,something like the cancelled Tour sans fins(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tour_Sans_Fins)

Tordjman's proposal was incredible. Too bad it didn't get selected as a finalist.

Libeskind's designs all blend into each other lately, he only thinks in 2D!
I love the Ferrier design, but have a suspicion that Foster will clinch this one.
