this is just my opinion of course but for such a historically beautiful city known for it's style I am surprised at the choices made in skyscrapers.They're not all bad,just very different(maybe that's what they're aiming for) and some a little ungainly

All the tower to be constructed in Paris are actually not in the historical Paris itself , it's outside the city in an area called La Défense.


Building such massive modern towers would be a shame if it was next to the Eiffel tower , but it's not , it's pretty far away.

Here you can see what I mean :

La Défense is in the left background :

I know how Paris is planned,it's just that even on the outskirts of the city where the towers are,they're,well,just not in the same tradition of taste-whatever that would beanyway just an opinion

They might be weird bt they are certainly better than the 80s blocks in a city that is considered one of the cultural capitals of the world lol. Go Paris!

I didn't like the design in the beginning when I first saw it for the Tour Signal project. But I actually got used to it, although I still think the top part looks somehow strange - and I know how I would change it, but I can't explain it.
Anyway, I think it would be nice if these towers get built.

I LOVE it. I'm all about asymmetry and bridging two towers. So, my question is...has this already been thrown out for Tour Signal or is it still a candidate? I hope it would not depart much from the rendering unless it's for the best.

It lost the Tour Signal contest yesterday (Nouvel's proposal grabbed the award), but there is a strong probability for these towers to be built according to several professional newspapers. The company behind this project seems to be very motivated and pushy to get the building erected around 2014, and has already bought the land and startes the procedures to move the inhabitants out.

Anyway, I really don't think they should built those towers there and like that, it'll be very very ugly

Please don't !!

I don't know anything about this project the first rendering looks good but some of the other one not so much. If this the worst pick then I wonder what some of the great ones look like.

I like the design. The skybridges and the concert hall look cool.
