For God's sake, ANYTHING BUT FERRIER !

I'm not a fan of the building itself and the chosen location will make it hide the new towers and ruin the skyline !

My vote goes to Libeskind and Foster.

Those new renders make it more appealing to me but still... the color is just...
ORANGE!!! You know....
Any idea what the thin "exterior elevator shaft"-looking thin tower is exactly? The one behind the tower when see from the East of LD?

I gotta say that I also like this tower more and more and even if it's really massive, it's gonna become the landmark of La Défense. Besides, it will be seen from everywhere in Paris. But this could be positive or negative. We'll see.

Just a question : how are they going to build the tower as there is no core inside it. I mean the elevator shaft is outside the tower and there is a giant hole in the middle. Sorry I'm just a newbie about skyscraper construction.

Whichever tower gets the 'Signal' title are really hope this one goes up to reinforce the South side of LD. Plus... It's pretty good!

Wilmotte's proposal is definitely my favorite. It's probably the most 'original' one as well.
